Where to Go In Santa Ynez to Celebrate Your Birthday Milestone
Santa Ynez Valley is a fantastic place to visit for special occasions. Separated from the Pacific Ocean by the sensational Santa Ynez Mountains, it’s a scenic valley with a rural feel. It’s perfect for relaxing weekends, anniversaries, and birthday getaways.
If you have a birthday milestone coming up and you’re looking for a special way to celebrate, here are a few ideas for a getaway to Santa Ynez with your spouse, your family, or all your besties.
Go Wine Tasting
Some of the wine-growing areas up north can be a little daunting. But Santa Ynez Valley is simply divine. There are just over a dozen or so wineries, with red wines featuring predominantly. Book a wine tasting tour for you and your guests and celebrate your birthday while sipping on Cabernet, Rhone, Pinot Noire, Merlot, and delicious Italian grape varietals.
Take a Trip to Solvang
Since it’s a birthday milestone, treat yourself to a luxurious limousine and take a day trip to Solvang to experience Danish heritage, interesting stores, and meandering strolls downtown. Take your time sampling the delicious Danish delights at any of the bakeries or restaurants, and if you’re a fan of the famous storyteller, Hans Christian Anderson, you can visit a museum dedicated just to him.
Los Olivos is a quaint little town with boutiques, art galleries, and some brilliant restaurants that run along the two-block main street. There are also a dozen or so tasting rooms in the area if you’re eager to try a few more local wines.
Plan a Night Out
After dark, Santa Ynez comes to life with sensational dining, live entertainment, and plenty of places to dance the night away in celebration. Explore the valley’s entertainment which includes seasonal concerts, world-class theater productions, rock music, and plenty of other options. If you’re not sure where to go, or you want something to truly remember, book a party bus and celebrate your birthday in style!
