Coming from Europe Solvang as a town will strike you as odd. Although they have tried very hard to make it a lovely warm town I feel a strange and utter touristic atmosphere. Still, go there, driving up from LA because to trip to Solvang, taking the PHW1 or any other route is definitely worth the trip.

If you are looking for the Solvang's charming town center with shops,bakeries,etc. then be aware the address listed here is not correct (i.e. Apple Lane: 1200 Alamo Pintado Road, Solvang, CA 93463). Many of the pictures show the actual town area (near Wildling Museum, Mission Santa Ines, etc.) that spreads out along either side of Mission Dr. We thought there... More

The architecture of many of the façades and buildings reflects traditional Danish style.... More

This little place is just five minutes from downtown Solvang, very easy to find. We were greeted by the cutest couple, they were very friendly and welcoming. They have several varieties that ripen at different times of the year. We were able to pick Galas, but they have them for sale at the stand if you would rather. We walked... More

The setting of this town made me feel like I'm in Denmark, even though I've never been to Denmark ;-). I like the little shops and restaurants as well as wine stores. The shopping was okay, but I did pick up a bottle of wine from Toccata, and it was excellent. I stopped by a couple of bakeries and ate... More

We visited the town for a short time on our return trip. The Danish pastries live up to their name. I only wish I would have bought more. This is a cute town and probably a gift shoppers paradise. I will say it is a bit touristy. However we were one of them.

When you travel there are often trade offs. Here's one I regret. Solvang is a really cool place and demands at least a day's visit. We were there for a few shorts hours. Solvang is rich with Danish heritage- so much to see so little time. Wine tastings abound but we did not have time for even one. What we... More

My wife and I stopped in Solvang for a few hours and happened to see a pamphlet for Apple Lane at one of the tourist centers. It’s only a few minutes drive outside of the town so we thought we’d give it a try since I’ve never picked my own apples. We pulled up and talked with one of the... More

I came to Solvang to spend a long weekend with the sister of the owners of Apple Lane farm, so I became well-acquainted with this family-owned farm! Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and more...grown with lots and lots of love and devotion. Oh, and let's not forget the giant pumpkins...fertilized by hand and babied throughout their entire lives. Going for... More
