Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Visiting Aldinga Beach and Henley Beach will get you outdoors. Visit Langmeil Winery and Adelaide Oval for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Adelaide: Gorge Wildlife Park (in Cudlee Creek), Primo Estate (in McLaren Vale) and National Motor Museum (in Birdwood). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at South Australian Maritime Museum, kick back and relax at Maslin Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Glenelg Beach, and get engrossed in the history at Adelaide Gaol.
