Solvang, California

Solvang which means sunny fields in Danish, is a hidden gem located 74km north west of Santa Barbara. This little town is home to a number of bakeries, restaurants and merchants, offering visitors a taste of Denmark in California. 
The weather was fantastic, it was hot and sunny 
Solvang street view. The architecture of the buildings and facades reflects traditional Danish style
The pedestrian friendly village is boosted by a bevy boutiques with elegant antiques and collectibles that are beautifully crafted
The best substitute for brains is Silence. Silence is a great substitute for intelligence =)
There are a variety of boutiques selling blue and white Delft ceramics. 
More ceramics...
Beautiful night lights! Very magical...
Love this cute signage - If Dad says no call 1-800-Grandpa.

    I would like one or two of those nightlights actually as I'm looking for a good one for my new room.

  2. I will go mad shopping at the boutiques, esp the accessories. Looks like a great place to visit and hoping I can do the same some day.

    1. Yes it is very nice. But I think it will be more meaningful if you bought it in Denmark. =)
