Where was Paddleton filmed
The tourist town with windmills, built in traditional Danish style, is Solvang in Santa Ynez Valley. According to Wikipedia, the town was founded in 1911 by a group of inmigrants from the Scandinavian country. They established a community that has become a little Denmark: you'll find a statue of the world famous Little Mermaid, a replica of Copenhagen's round tower Rundetårn, a bust of Hans Christian Andersen... however there's nothing made out of lego.

There is also a short scene with Andy filmed in a neighborhood of Solvang in Viborg Rd, so maybe the house of the two protagonists is nearby. Image courtesy of Netflix and Google Maps

  1. Great movie! I wasn't a Ray Romano fan before,Duplass was the reason I watched it. It was a funny and heart wrenching movie. I'm from the area it was filmed, so that made it fun too. Even though, as a tourist trap we avoid Solvang like the plague it's fun to see familiar locations.

    1. Haha, the locations are a bit quirky, but we like them. Thanks Webster!
