Itching to escape L.A.? Go scratch in ‘burbs about 30 miles away, like Anaheim for Disneyland or a bit further, Seal Beach. Ditch your boring deli danish and venture out to Solvang, the all-things-Danish town resembling an Alpine movie set. Savor the town specialty, an aebleskiver: a sugary, jam-covered puff pastry. To get high right, drive 90 minutes north to Wrightwood, high in the San Gabriel Mountains. Chill with the white stuff—cold snow.
