"Sideways" Map
FYI... we recommend that you can pick up a "Sideways" Map — it's really helpful in navigating your way around the "Sideways" locations (wineries and restaurants) featured in the film. Maps are available at the Visitors Center in Santa Barbara (on State Street), downtown Solvang (on Copenhagen Street) or check with your Hotel Concierge.
