"Solvang" Santa Barbara Off The Beaten Path Tip by trvlnurse

Santa Barbara Off The Beaten Path: 46 reviews and 69 photos


Solvang is predominantly a Danish community with what it calls "Quaint Old World" style. Lots of cute shops and eateries. Beware, however that Solvang runs about 20 degrees warmer than Santa Barbara despite only being about 30 miles inland. It was quite a shock, expecting the mild 70's like Santa Barbara, and finding instead a humid 90 degrees.
