32. Why Solvang, California?
If you want "Christmasy" this is it. This Danish town is a tourist attraction year-round for its Old World architecture, shops, and restaurants. During Julefest, its December-long celebration of the holidays, the destination is transformed with lights and decorations and features many events, including regular visits from Santa. And, Solvang is close to Santa Barbara, a gorgeous California beach town, making it a double feature.
