On our way to San Francisco from Los Angeles, we stopped by Solvang, a Denmark village.
Colorful buildings with summer attire.
Another place to stop by while heading to San Francisco, Hearst Castle used to be owned by William Hearst, the tycoon owner of few publishing companies in the 1980's. However, it has been donated by the Hearst family to the California State Government due its high land taxes few years ago..
Though it is named as a 'castle', no king or royal family has stayed inside. Its 'castle' name came from its wonderful location (at the top of the hill), splendid design, expensive art pieces, and guest visitors.
