Visit Santa Ynez
Near Santa Barbara there is a cute little scenic valley called the Santa Ynez Valley. The scenic valley is between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the San Rafael Mountains. Many activities can be sampled in all the lovely towns of the Santa Ynez valley. Santa Ynez is a place full of activities and lodging. With Solvang as the largest city, it has a lot more options for lodging. If you are unable to find lodging in Solvang due to the high tourist count, you may need to seek lodging in one of the smaller communities in the surrounding area.
The Danish theme that flows over Solvang isn’t just for local shops it also follows suit for the more corporate buildings as well like hotels and restaurants. With the most beautiful tourist shops, restaurants, landmarks, wine tasting and local markets, Solvang is a wonderful place to visit. Though Solvang has shopping food and other wonderful spirits about it, its also a great place to consider home base when exploring the valley and all it has to offer. For a great, more adult vacation spot, Solvang has 30 wineries within a 10 mile radius to offer. If you are looking for a hotel that is close to the main street of the town, Solvang Ca Hotel, Hadsten House and Hotel Corque are great places to spend the night. But if you are looking for a more comfortable stay, bed and breakfasts include the Mirabelle inn, Meadowlark inn, and the Solvang Gardens-Boutique Country Inn.
