ABOUT THE RUN:

Join us on a fun run south to Solvang. This overnight trip will have lots of sights along the way and at our final destination. Solvang has a rich Danish heritage. Founded by Danish immigrants in 1911, Solvang boasts authentic architecture, thatched roofs, old-world craftsmanship and traditional windmills.Named by Sunset magazine as one of the "10 Most Beautiful Small Towns in the Western United States," Solvang's rich heritage dates back to 1911 when adventurous Danish-Americans traversed the plains from Iowa to establish a settlement in the golden state of California. Over 1 million visitors come each year to experience the northern European culture, cuisine and unique boutique shopping. The pedestrian-friendly village hosts three museums, 15 inns and hotels, a full-service guest ranch, meeting facilities, 30+ restaurants and bakeries, 150 retail shops and the Solvang Theaterfest, an alfresco 700-seat theater. The feature film "Sideways" was filmed in Solvang and highlighted the regions' celebrated world-class wines.

The Solvang Conference & Visitors Bureau staffs a Visitors Center in Downtown Solvang. Visitor Center, open 7 days a week, 9 AM - 5 PM, is located at:
