Why Santa Ynez Valley Should Be Your Next Vacation
The Santa Ynez Valley is a cute town outside Santa Barbara, California. This valley full of breathtaking views sits between the Santa Ynez and the San Rafael mountains. The valley contains numerous activities, such as sight seeing in Solvang; shopping and wine tasting, and the Chumash Casino Resort. Not only are activities in the valley plentiful, but Santa Ynez hotels and other sleeping accommodations are available. Solvang being a more populated area, it has a lot more lodging accommodations. Though Solvang is the most populated, it’s also the top of a tourists destination list, with a hundred thousand visitors or more a year making the lodging options quite tight, so moving to another small town for lodging may be a more sensible option.
The beautiful Danish themed village of Solvang, the hotels, and other buildings follow interior and exterior theme. Solvang brings a more European vibe with it’s walkable streets, local markets, bakeries, restaurants with wine tasting and there are also beautiful windmills and landmarks to view. Solvang has the most centrally located availability for adventuring throughout the surrounding local communities and the valley. If you are looking for a great place to go wine tasting in California, Solvang has 30 wineries within a 10 mile radius. Popular hotels of the area are the Kronberg Inn, Solvang Ca Hotel and the Hadsten House, all wonderful and within a few blocks of the main street that runs through town. Solvang also offers a more comfortable stay in the hospitality industry such as a plethora of bed and breakfasts to accommodate to your needs.
Just north of Solvang, is Santa Yenz that offers other hotels such as the Santa Ynez inn and the Sanja Cota Motor Lodge. By being a slight bit farther from Solvang, it does make it a cost effective option.
Entertainment for the gambling bunch is great in Santa Ynez with the Chumash Casino and Resort.
