Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Head to Adelaide Central Market and Rundle Mallfor plenty of shopping. South Australian Museum and McLaren Vale III Associates are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Carrickalinga Beach (in Carrickalinga) and Horseshoe Bay (in Port Elliot). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Art Gallery of South Australia, enjoy the sand and surf at Semaphore Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Adelaide Botanic Garden, and do a tasting at Paracombe Premium Perry.
