Lompoc, California is located about 175 miles north of Los Angeles, and about 50 miles north of Santa Barbara, in Santa Barbara County. The area is largely agricultural, and is known for its flower industry. Tourism is a major industry in the area, and nearby are the Danish village of Solvang, Buellton, the home of Anderson's Split Pea Soup and a thriving wine industry featured in the film "Sideways." Vandenburg Air Force Base is also located in Lompoc. Originally scheduled to be the west-coast base for Space Shuttle launches, Vandenburg AFB has long been the location of the USAF missile test program, providing southern Californians with some spectacular evening light shows during the program's heyday in the 1960's and 70's.
