Solvang: One of my Favorite Cities in Southern California

After finishing a lot of assignments and studying for exams during the weekdays, going on a short weekend trip is always exciting. Solvang is a lovely town just a 40-minute drive from UC Santa Barbara. The city is famous in California for its Danish-style restaurants, shops, and bakeries. 

Most of the buildings in the city are built in the traditional Danish style, with statues of Andersen, author of Aesop's Fables, and Dutch windmills in the center of the city. In the evening, we went to Carpinteria State Beach, which is located in eastern Santa Barbara, to see the beautiful sunset and have a wonderful dinner.
