California is a large and diverse state. From beaches to mountains, deserts to forests, and big cities to small towns, the Golden State has it all. Here are some of the best day trips from Los Angeles all within two hours driving from the city.
Solvang is a quaint Danish town in central California. Strolling through its streets lined with Scandinavian buildings, dotted with windmills, and decorated with flags, you nearly forget you’re a mere 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles. If you prefer traveling with your dog along, Solvang is a delightful place for a day trip or one night getaway.
