A small city located in Santa Barbara county founded in the 1900s by a Danish colony.
Half timbered buildings with numerous bakeries, restaurants, winery and shops offer a taste of Denmark in California.
We visited the city during Labor Day weekend just for one day trip and had a good time walking around the unique city. Danish pastries are so good! And got to have the cheese Danish and butter cookies again when we are back here next time! They are delicious!

We found a gallery of Thomas Kinkade works. He is one of my favorite American painters and my favorite painting of him is Hyde Street and The Bay - San Francisco. I loved this place. We were not allowed to take pictures inside so I am posting some of the postcards we got :)
