This is taken from the Solvang,Ca Visitor Resource web site:

solvangusa.com/explore-solvang/…

Amtrak® offers daily connecting bus service from area train stations to downtown Solvang ( 1-800-USA-RAIL 1-800-USA-RAIL or www.amtrak.com).

Private aircraft land at Santa Ynez Airport-IZA (688- 8390).

SuperRide offers shuttle service from Santa Barbara Airport (SBA)

with advance reservations (683-9636). - See more at: solvangusa.com/explore-solvang/visitor-infor…

You can take the flyer bus from LAX to the downtown train station which is listed as LAX on the Amtrak web site although it is NOT at the airport.

Then take the train and connecting bus up to Solvang.

Renting a car would be soooo much easier!!

I'd also take the train to Santa Barbara, Amtrak bus from there. . Reiterating what #1 said, despite the fact that Amtrak uses "LAX" as its designation for Union Station, to get the train you'd first need to get to the station in downtown L.A. Flyaway bus costs about $7 per person. You don't want to drive, but how will you get around once you get to Solvang? Why are you going to Solvang? Tours? Just staying in Solvang, and for how long? Knowing the answer to that may help people give suggestions for alternate locations.

You could consider staying in Santa Barbara (by train or shuttle directly from LAX) and then book a tour to Solvang from there. Nicer location, IMHO.

Excursion limo from RoadRunner Shuttle, $359 one way for up to 14 people:

Really, not too bad, at about $80 per person round trip.
