Santa Ines is a beautiful and quite old CA mission with some interesting history. It is a small mission with a chapel and some gardens with a cemetery. The chapel and the gardens/cemetery are lovely, however the $5 tour takes only about 10 minutes max.

If you like visiting Missions this is another. If you have never done so then you should go at least once. This one has audio playing in each room as part of a tour. It costs $5.

We try to visit California Missions when we are in the area. They offer a slice of history and each one is a little different.

We enjoyed visiting this mission while in Solvang. It is well maintained and still in use...many masses, in either English or Spanish. The rose garden is lovely as are the views from the site.

During our stop in Solvang, we visited the small chapel a short while for adoration. We weren't sure how to go into the main church. The lady at the gift shop said there was Mass each morning at 8:00. The grounds are small but we...More

This mission has a rich history of the Chumash Indians. We really enjoyed walking around all of the grounds and reading the signage. If you're in Solvang you need to stop by here and just spent 30 minutes or so walking the lovely grounds. There...More

i'm not sure. In the areas we went it was ground floor or pathways and the doors were wide enough. My suggestion would be to call and check to know for sure though.
