Its A Lifestyle
Ahh, Solvang. It’s a great place….to live, visit, work, play, grow up, retire, shop, eat, sip of just relax. Unique, quaint, worldly, and historic, it has many facets; there is no other town like ours. The Village’s European-style pedestrian friendly shopping makes it one of the most walkable cities in California. Today, Solvang’s special history continues to be part of the texture of its everyday life, while also finding its expression in contemporary formats. As in Denmark today, biking is an integral mode of transportation, farm-to-table cooking is a part of the fabric of life, and in this walkable village, and residents as well as visitors can find both necessities and treasures in the nooks and crannies of this ever-evolving town.
Solvang still takes pride in its rich Danish heritage and celebrates the hard work and vision of its residents and business owners who are the core of Solvang’s thriving community.
