I picked the hotel that we stayed in because it was modern and clad full of Danish pride. My favorite touches were the beach cruisers that you could rent and the Danish flag blankets on the bed.
Since we only had one day to spend in Solvang, we wanted to make the most of it. We walked around the town, taking in the sights and wading through the sea of other tourists. After snagging a table for brunch for breakfast at the Belgian Cafe, we walked around town visiting the shops and picking up a couple of souvenirs. There is a bakery on every corner in Solvang, but we chose to eat at Olsen’s Danish Village Bakery because it was near our hotel. They had delicious pastries and sold cute buckets of Danish butter cookies. The napkins were perfect – Wiking Pride!
Obligatory tourist photo. We had dinner at a place called Bit O’Denmark. The woman at Elna’s Dress Shop recommended it for more authentic Danish cuisine. The meatballs did not disappoint. As the sun started to fade, we made our way back to our hotel. It had an outdoor area that we let the kids indulge in a little to relax a little before bed. I feel like we could have spent one or two more days there to do some more exploring.
