Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Take a break from the city and head to Carrickalinga Beach and Aldinga Beach. Head to Adelaide Central Market and Rundle Mallfor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to McLaren Vale III Associates (in McLaren Vale), Horseshoe Bay (in Port Elliot) and Delamere (Deep Creek Conservation Park & Blowhole Beach). Dedicate the 19th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: stroll through Henley Beach, kick back and relax at Glenelg Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Adelaide Botanic Garden, and admire the masterpieces at Art Gallery of South Australia.
