    Has anyone ever been there? It's a really pretty Danish town and I'm thinking about going for a few days over the Christmas break. It looks super quaint, loads of wineries and tasting rooms and who doesn't like a Danish pastry?
    @Luke Hand Cool you should come as well!

    Solvang is awesome.

    And for the love of God make sure you get some Æbleskiver while you're there.

    Stopped there once, seemed pretty cool. Didn't get to do much, was weird hours lots of stuff was closed and we were on a road trip back from Santa Barbara.

    I love going to caverns, stalagmites and stalagtites have fascinated me since going to Cheddar Gorge as a kid.
    That place looks awesome.

    I went there years ago. It's a cute little town. Lots of different food and sweets to try and useless trinkets to buy.

    Don't rent those pedaling cars that everyone rides around in. They're insanely heavy and hard to pedal (or maybe my wife and kids just weren't pushing as hard as they said they were) but it was definitely no fun. I kept thinking how I wished I just rented us all separate bikes so everyone pulled their own weight

    You sound like someone who plays a real guitar instead of kicking ass on Guitar Hero. Dork.

    It’s pretty cool… definitely a bit of a tourist trap but good weather, some good wine and restaurants, not a bad place to go
