LAX (Los Angeles)
- Distance: 2 hours & 15 minutes
- Scoop: Be mindful of traffic. The earlier you can fly in the better - to avoid it.
SBA (Santa Barbara)
- Distance: 45 minutes
- Scoop: This is a smaller airport, so flights tend to be more expensive than LAX.
We recommend that you fly in earlier in the day on Thursday, to miss traffic and attend the Welcome Reception at 4pm. Due to cost, we estimate most guests will fly into LAX, however, you could always do LAX on the way in and SBA out of town for a little more convenience.
The town of Solvang where everyone will be staying is a charming Danish Village. There are plenty of things to do, all within walking distance, plus there are other charming towns within a few minutes of town if you wanted to venture out (Los Olivos & Santa Ynez).
There are tons of tasting rooms in town, which makes it easy to enjoy some wine and not worry about driving. You can also venture out to local wineries for a more authentic tasting. There is also a lot of shopping and plenty of wonderful places to eat too!
Below are some dining options ...
Paula's Pancake House
One of the best places in town for breakfast. They fill up fast though! Make sure to try their Danish pancakes!
Located at Hotel Corque, they have a great patio and atmosphere with yummy bites! Good for anything you want, but their happy hour is fantastic!
Mad & Vin
Delicious restaurant located in one of the chicest new hotels in town. They have a great bar adjacent for happy hour too! Try their cheese fondue - yum!
The Hitching Post II
This is an iconic steakhouse just outside of town, made famous by the movie Sideways! They are open for cocktail hour and dinner.
