Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Venture out of the city with trips to Murray Street Vineyards (in Greenock), Langmeil Winery (in Tanunda) and The Cedars (in Hahndorf). Dedicate the 16th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Adelaide Botanic Garden, look for all kinds of wild species at Cleland Wildlife Park, get engrossed in the history at Migration Museum, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
