Over Thanksgiving, I drove up north to Santa Barbara for a weekend making brief stops through quaint small towns.
Solvang was the first on my list. While it’s not my first time coming here per se, I had forgotten what this town was like until I arrived. Walking through downtown I was fascinated at the Danish style architecture and wondered further checking out the bakeries, coffee shops and restaurants. The town truly has a charm that makes you want to come back.
On my way out of Solvang I found a little hidden gem where they have an entire field full of Ostriches and Emus that you can feed for $1 with a $5 admission fee per person. I couldn’t help myself and had to stop by. Be warned though, these animals are quite grabby so, be careful when you extend your pan out for them to eat.
