When I woke up on Saturday I knew I was in the mood for an adventure. Luckily, I was able to convince this other guy that not only would an adventure be a great idea, but that he should drive. (I win!)
We decided to head out to Solvang, Ca. It is a town about 2 hours north of Los Angeles and it is a really pretty silly place. It has this crazy theme around Denmark and one of my friends even called it "The Epcot of Wine Country". Basically, its a town where you can eat, drink wine, look at windmills, and eat Danish pastries.
We started the day at Andersen's Pea Soup. This is a California travel icon! An inn and restaurant known for it's pea soup and silly decor. The soup was actually pretty delicious, and the entire experience was kitchy and silly...which is basically what our entire day was!
We walked around the town, wine tasted, and ended the day with a few beers and this charcuterie plate that must have been handed down from the angels, because really...have you ever seen anything more beautiful?
If you are in the mood for touristy goodness with enough booze to keep you buzzed for hours...than Solvang is the place for you. We will be back soon enough...
