Solvang has an “authentic” Danish atmosphere in the town center. The city is known for the number of bakeries, delicious pastries, restaurants, and merchants offering a taste of Denmark on the California Central Coast.

A replica of Copenhagen’s Round Tower or Rundetårn in the scale 1:3 was finished in 1991 and can be seen in the town center. The Mission Santa Ines is one of the California missions. The nearby, picturesque Cachuma Lake and surrounding area, is a beautiful place to visit.
