Day 1 Los Angeles-Santa Barbara-Solvang-San Simeon-Los Angeles(416 miles)

Today, we will travel up the stunning California coastline on our way to Santa Barbara, where we will visit an old Spanish mission and learn about how these religious outposts were key to the development of the region. Then, we will visit the city's harbor and sandy beaches, getting to know why rich and famous movie stars love to call this place home. We will continue north to Solvang, an authentic Dutch village with European architecture. We will stroll down the main street and browse local shops. Then, we will continue to the world-famous Hearst Castle, built by newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst. Every room of this classic estate is filled with artistic treasures: antique ceilings, Greek vases, oriental carpets, and more. Afterwards, we will return to Los Angeles, where the tour will come to an end.

Antiquated windmills and Northern Europeans-style architecture punctuate the little village's skyline. Brilliant sunshine, boundless open country and rolling hills- these are the characteristics of what the original Danish immigrants called "Solvang" or "Sunny Field"
