Välkommen to Little Sweden

On our last day on the trip, we headed off to Downtown Kingsburg in search of souvenirs. Kingsburg is known as the Little Sweden of California due to its Swedish roots dating back to the 1800s. With that information, most buildings look almost what I imagine Swedish buildings would look like (even their water tower is shaped in a teapot!).

They had a Historic Jail as one of their popular spots; unfortunately we didn’t have much time to explore the place.

Once we found some souvenirs (magnet for mom; a patch for me and some viking hats for my brothers), we were on the hunt for some food. We ended up at the Village Mall and had some sandwiches from Diane’s Village Bakery & Cafe. The service was rather slow but I guess when you’re from the fast-paced city life, everything else just seems slower – besides, their grilled artichoke chicken panini was worth the wait.

After lunch, we headed back to Southern California; we stopped by the Outlets at Tejon Ranch where I bought a new pair of sandals and a hat from Columbia (everything was 50% off plus they offered 10% off discount to students if you show them your ID or your registration *wink*). We arrived home safely and I’m definitely itching for my next trip.

I finally finished making the video for this trip! Check it out here or hit play (watch in HD!). Don’t forget to subscribe to the channel!
