Solvang is not a Danish theme park, but an actual town designed by Dane immigrants who wanted to feel at home.

Word is, Solvang is going the way of Los Olivos,  characterized to us as "Las Vegas for winos."

Property prices in Solvang are steeply rising as young retirees from Beverly Hills compete to buy new homes in the contemporary housing developments that continue to proliferate.

Sadly, the traditional shops and eateries of old Denmark are getting transformed into flashy wine-tasting emporiums...
