Santa Ynez, California
Considered by many as ‘the Tuscany of California’, the Santa Ynez Valley is made up of six vintage-styled towns of Los Alamos, Los Olivos, Buellton, Solvang, Ballard and Santa Ynez. Think false facades that hark back to the early Spanish settlers and restored and refined ranches. There’re even sidewalks studded with horseshoes for the new cowgirl/boy in town. But what fuels this region is wine, and the six towns are easily picked off by bike if you want to wobble between wineries.
