There are many reasons to visit Adelaide. It’s the beautiful capital of South Australia that is gaining popularity with North American tourists due to its cosmopolitan atmosphere and friendly locals.
Adelaide can accommodate any traveller; almost any kind of vacation is possible. It’s only 20 miles from the coast at Glenelg, so digging your toes into the sand and soaking up the sun–in December–is most certainly possible. You will be the envy of your friends (back in the USA) when you return with a radiant tan in the middle of winter!
If you prefer an active way to catch the Australian summer, Adelaide is also a sports hub. It’s host to two gorgeous public 18-hole golf courses in addition to several beautiful private courses. If you’re more of a spectator, Adelaide hosts two Australian Rules football teams. This sport combines aspects of rugby, soccer, and American football that makes for an action-packed match. It’s guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience; Australian’s enthusiasm for the sport is contagious. Adelaide also hosts many national and international rugby and cricket matches, and tennis, basketball, and sailing are all cherished past-times.
Adelaide can also provide a more relaxing vacation. It is known for its original architecture, and it’s referred to as the city of churches. Many of these structural wonders are located near many of the Adelaide hotels and accommodation and are in walking distance. You can also take a stroll through the lovely Botanical Gardens.
Also some of Adelaide’s fantastic restaurants are within walking distance. Adelaide has more restaurants per capita than any other city in Australia, and any type of food you are craving is in close proximity. If you’re a wine aficionado, there are many nearby wine districts, and there are several bus tours through the vineyards that rival the best in the world.
Australia is beautiful and inhabited by some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Adelaide is a superior choice because it offers the metropolitan experience without the problems major metropolises experience. So who wants to visit Adelaide? I do!
