I'm headed to the Solvang/Santa Ynez Valley next week with the intention of wine tasting for a day and fitting in a good dinner Tuesday and Wednesday and then stopping by Santa Barbara for breakfast Thursday before heading to Long Beach for a wedding.
I'll be traveling solo and am considering a wine tour through the grapeline for ease, though tours are not my first pick. I'm looking for suggestions for places I can dine comfortably alone and whether you'd suggest the tour idea or instead doing 2-3 wineries on my own. I'm thinking about staying in Solvang for the two nights. I'm a east coast food person, looking for 1 mid-price dinner, 1 treat, and any good SB AM suggestions. Thanks for any ideas, love this board!
