Big Sur Roadtrip: Solvang

For our first wedding anniversary we decided to do a long weekend trip up the Pacific Coast Highway to Big Sur/Monterey. We left on a Thursday evening after work and headed straight to Solvang for the night.

Solvang was founded in 1911 as a new community by Danish settlers and entering the town makes you feel like you have either jumped across the globe to Denmark OR stepped onto a movie set, when in actuality you’re in  Santa Barbara C

Our room was neat and tidy, with many horse pictures.


We chose to eat dinner across the road at Solvang Brewing Company – good veggie burgers and a wonderful raspberry beer.

After dinner we took a walk around the little town – it felt like Christmas with all the lights, and was very quiet.IMG_0163

We didn’t spend a lot of time in Solvang apart from a coffee & danish in the morning and another quick stroll around town, as we had many miles to cover over the weekend and needed to head north! The below photos show how cute this town is and I’d love to come back for a window.
