A taste of Denmark in California


I visited Solvang last weekend. Downtown Solvang is a little taste of Denmark with warm California weather. My favorite part of the day was eating pastries at the local bakeries.

The Danish-styled architecture creates an authentic Danish atmosphere throughout Solvang.

The first of the village’s four windmills was built in the mid 1940’s after a local architect got back from a trip to Denmark.

Solvang has become a major California tourist attraction for a good reason. If you ever get the chance to visit I would highly recommend it.
