If you’re making your way north along the Pacific Coast Highway, Solvang is a great place to stretch your legs. It is about 15 miles away from PCH (US 1), but well worth the visit. The Danish influence is very prominent in the architecture and décor of the town buildings. There are several bakeries, restaurants and over 150 trinket shops to meander through.
You can easily spend a day exploring here. Experience the culture of Denmark in California - unlike any other place- than Denmark itself!
