Could California’s Central Coast Lead the Way For the Future of Local Food Tourism?

Could California’s Central Coast Lead the Way For the Future of Local Food Tourism?


The city of Solvang has been trying to give tasting rooms and other small businesses a fighting chance by offering microloans of $5,000 to anyone with a corporate license, paid out through the city’s general reserve fund. And with many anticipating a mid-May partial reopening, the city is even considering a rejiggering of its colorful downtown area, complete with a pedestrian-only main drag to better allow for physical distancing.


Employees will be kitted out with personal protective equipment, and customers can rotate through the various businesses in a safe, slow wave. There could even be a move to allow more outdoor dining and parklets over the following months as restaurants continue to come back online with reduced capacity.
