Solvang is located in Santa Barbara County in the Santa Ynez Valley and is known as the "Danish Capital of America." With a population of approximately 5,300, Solvang, which means "Sunny Field" in Danish, is set among oak-studded, rolling hills and features quaint Danish architecture, windmills and picturesque flower-lined streets. Solvang was voted one of the "10 Most Beautiful Small Towns in the Western U.S." by Sunset Magazine. Mission Santa Ines, which is both a California Historical Landmark and a National Historic Landmark, is located near the center of the village at the junction of State Highway 246 and Alisal Road. Thatch, copper and tile-roofed buildings house delightful shops that offer imported European porcelain, collectibles, wrought iron, antiques, chocolates and coffees and much more. A wide variety of restaurants are available and everything from cozy country inns to full-service hotels are within walking distance of most of the shops and activities in town. Other things to do in the area include golf, bicycling, horseback riding, birding, wine tasting, hiking and jeep tours of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Visitors to the Valley in August through October enjoy roadside stands that offer the delicious harvest from the local apple orchards. A visit to the village of Solvang is a treat for the senses - from the visually stimulating Old World architecture to the tempting aromas of pastries and breads and sugar-dusted Danish pancake balls - you wont be disappointed.

Solvang Weather & Climate

The climate of the Los Alamos area is very similar to that of the central coast cities such as Santa Barbara. Although located slightly inland, the weather is influenced greatly by the Pacific Ocean. Temperatures are pleasant year round, although it is slightly warmer in summer and slightly cooler in winter than right along the coastline. The Los Alamos region gets over 300 days of sunshine per year and has very low humidity levels. The rainy season runs November through March, with only about 18 inches of rain per year. Low clouds from the ocean can drift into the area in summertime, but mostly skies are clear and sunny. Cooling ocean breezes help moderate the temperatures.
