Solvang is One of Danish Towns in America

One side of Solvang town

I knew Danes have settled in northern parts of America. They are easily found in the states such as:
- North and South Dakota
- Illinois
- Iowa
- Wisconsin
- Michigan

It is interesting to know that Solvang is Danish town in Santa Ynez valley, Santa Barbara, California. The reason to live in California was to avoid harsh winter in northern part.

Solvang is Danish word for sunny field, the town has 5,900 population with European tastes and influences.

This beautiful “little village” is a kind of gateway to see Danish early settlement in California.

The town is small enough to walk around for two or three hours, especially at the weekend, and enjoy peaceful setting of historic Denmark heritages.

We may found authentic Danish products if stop by in the:
- bakeries (sell Danish pasteries, bread and decorated cakes)
- souvenir shops
- antique shops
- museums
- candle shops
- many small shops
- a lot of restaurants

In specific days, we may “watch” parades and shows such as car show, include classic cars.

Have you visited Solvang or any Danish town in America?

  5. I visited this small city many, many years ago so I do not remember much. I do remember I bought a souvenir spoon for my mom as my friends and I stopped there for a few hours.

  19. Thanks for stopping at my blog.
    I would love to visit this town!
    I live in southwest Michigan and in my area there are a lot of Dutch towns, the most famous being Holland Michigan. They are well known for Tulip Time, an annual Spring festival celebrating all things Dutch. This year it is cancelled due to Covid 19. This has never happened before.
