DISCOVER THE SANTA YNEZ VALLEY

Your Santa Ynez Valley Vacation Getaway starts here.

While traveling along the Highway 101 on the Central Coast of California, when you arrive in Santa Barbara County wine country you will want to visit the Santa Ynez Valley with more than 150 wineries, 250 boutique shops and more than 60 California cuisine restaurants.

Find idyllic peace at Ballard Inn which permeates the small, historic, town of Ballard and enjoy coffee, bread, and pastry at Bob’s Well Bread.

In beautiful Solvang with its old-world European architecture and Danish history and culture, stay in one of the many boutique hotels, like The Landsby, for that perfect example of “hygge” with its sleek Scandinavian design. Enjoy the delightful aromas and tastes of authentic Danish bakeries, Aebleskiver breakfasts, and hip coffee joints.

Discover the energy of the Old West in the town of Santa Ynez, with numerous boutiques and where a stay at Santa Ynez Inn pampers with posh surroundings.

Sample shopping delights beckoning from the town’s art galleries, boutiques, and garden and home décor shops, while edible pursuits with farm-fresh fare from Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café and more entice. Plan your wine country weekend with more than thirty wine tasting rooms right in Los Olivos.

Buellton provides roadside attractions, such as appointment-only Mendenhall’s Museum of Gasoline Pumps & Petroliana, and the famous feathered-friends at Ostrich Land USA. Vineyard horseback rides or day hikes in the area lead to “BBQ steak” dinners at Hitching Post II, or international tastes à la wood-fired, chef-driven menu items at Industrial Eats.
