Believe me, there’s plenty of room to run, jump, play and experience family fun in Solvang year-round, yet especially this time of year with spring vacations in full bloom. So don’t miss the wildflowers in the adjacent Los Padres National Forest. All public parks around town have free admission and are open daily sunrise to sunset. Solvang’s Hans Christian Andersen Park is a woodsy green space with picnic areas, tennis courts, a playground and free Skate Park for boarders. The whimsical wooden playground and ball field at Sunny Fields Park is a personal family favorite. For a two-horse powered tour that kids of all ages can enjoy, hop aboard the Solvang Trolley–an historic wooden streetcar pulled by a pair of impressive draft horses. If you’re feeling really adventurous, how about the two-wheel Segway of Solvang tour?
