Adelaide is a city with a thriving food scene. You’ll definitely find each cuisine in the city exciting, especially. Start by heading to the city’s best food destinations. Go to the East End and Leigh Street, where the best restaurants can be found. You’ll get to choose from high-end dining to cheap street eats.

The City’s Hills Wineries and Vineyards
Aside from its exciting food, Adelaide is also known for its celebrated wineries and vineyards. The city’s famous wine regions are home to over 60 wineries and cellar doors. Adelaide Hills also offer local produce for people who don’t have a taste for wine. They also offer cheeses, cured meats, organic greens and even olives.
One of the famous destinations found in Adelaide Hills is Mount Lofty. It’s famous for its summit hike, which is perfect for locals and tourists who wanted to spend their weekends walking across the green summit. It’s one of the reasons why most people travel to Adelaide.
And of course, who wouldn’t want to witness the pink-skied sunset of the city. Adelaide has sub-tropical weather which makes it hotter by the summer and cold by winter. There’s a huge possibility that you’ll be having a hot 40° on a summer that can go for a couple of days, and a chilly 16° in winter.
So there you have it, my 4 best things why you should travel to Adelaide.
