For more than a half century, it's been a rite of passage for travelers making the drive up or down the California coast to stop in little Solvang, 50 kilometers (31 miles) over the mountains from Santa Barbara. The town's windmills and half-timbered houses, as well as its bakeries and shops selling porcelain and linens, reflect the Danish roots of the families who founded Solvang in 1911. The nearby Santa Ynez Valley wineries have grown in reputation, and tasting tours along several wine routes were made ever more popular by the film Sideways.
