Once you have had your share of wandering through the grapevines and tasting the produce, consider enjoying some of Santa Ynez's other attractions. Michael Jackson's Never-land Ranch was situated in the Santa Ynez valley and though you cannot go inside, you can spot it from the road outside.

A fascinating site in Santa Ynez is the town of Solvang -- a town that was founded by Dutch settlers in California and has been recreated in a Dutch theme, with unusual cafes serving pastries and strudels, as well as wooden windmills dotted around the city limits.
