Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Adelaide: The Cedars (in Hahndorf), Fox Creek Wines (in McLaren Vale) and Granite Island (in Victor Harbor). Dedicate the 20th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: take in nature's colorful creations at Adelaide Botanic Garden, explore the world behind art at Art Gallery of South Australia, get a new perspective on nature at South Australian Museum, and identify plant and animal life at Cleland Wildlife Park.
