Solvang and Santa Barbara

Before our day trip to Anacapa Island, we spent a day in lovely Solvang and Santa Barbara. Solvang is a beautiful little Danish village a few miles north of Santa Barbara. It’s filled with Danish treats and souvenirs. It’s easy to walk around the village and pop in to all the little shops and bakeries.
