Solvang, a Danish city in California

Solvang is a Danish city in Santa Babara country, California, United states. It was founded in 1911 on 9000 acres of land by a group of Danes who want to establish a Danish colony that far away from winter season. They choose this place because of it sunny day. The name "Solvang" mean sunny fields in Danish. It actually a small city where you can see some bakeries, restaurants and merchants that offer Danish taste in California. When reached there you will feel like" little Copenhagen", all the building is in Danish style, they even build a replica of Copenhangen's Round tower ( Rundetårn) in 1:3 scale. I went there last winter'09 it quite cold and cloudy that time(winter time more rain), but it a relax city; suitable for retired people that seeking relax life. I would like to go again .
