Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Adelaide Oval and South Australian Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Adelaide Central Market and North Terracefor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from Adelaide: Semaphore Beach (in Semaphore), Langmeil Winery (in Tanunda) and Murray Street Vineyards (in Greenock). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Rundle Mall, meet the residents at Adelaide Zoo, kick back and relax at Seacliff Beach, and identify plant and animal life at Cleland Wildlife Park.
