For every individual consumed by wanderlust, there’s a craving for adventure. There’s a craving that sets the soul on fire. It’s a craving so strong that it reignites our senses to its unparalleled depth.
We all hear about the beauty of faraway destinations, told by lucky travelers, but never get to see it with our own eyes. From the seashell-studded coastline of Bora Bora, to the mighty mountains of the Swiss Alps—there’s immeasurable beauty in the world.
But just because you can’t visit these destinations, that doesn’t mean California doesn’t have its own hidden gems. At the heart of Southern California lies a beautiful valley that leaves behind even the most gorgeous destinations.
And that is Solvang in the Santa Ynez Valley!
If you’re planning a solo escapade to Solvang, here’s what you should do:
Do Your Research
Although it’s pleasant all year-round in Solvang, it doesn’t hurt to do your research. If you’re not a fan of visiting places during peak season, you should avoid planning the trip in July and August. These two months are the busiest, with more tourists than usual.
You can still visit Solvang during the winters, but the best time to go would be in December and early March. You can also visit in November, which is when there are fewer tourists around.
Get to Know the Culture and History
Solvang is proud of its Danish heritage. It’s home to a rich culture and legacy. With a population of only 5,000 people, it’s easy to get around. You can mingle with the locals to get a good sense of the history and culture of the beautiful region.
If you’re looking to get a taste of the local cuisine, there are tons of cafés and restaurants at your disposal. Furthermore, there is an old Danish bakery that’s home to mouthwatering snacks and confectionary. You can go there after a wine tasting tour to make your adventures truly unforgettable.
