From the heights of Table Mountain to the dramatic stretches of coastline, Cape Town’s wonderful weather year-round makes it a popular destination for beach lovers and wine aficionados alike. Its world-famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Green Point Park compliment these natural blessings wonderfully. The nearby Boulders Penguin Colony is also a popular spot due to its cute but loud jackass penguins.

A proudly multicultural city, Cape Town blends Afrikaner, native, and European sensibilities in an intoxicating blend of architectural, musical, and culinary styles. The colorful neighborhood of Bo-Kaap perhaps best epitomizes this, but the city’s diverse roots can be seen in every bar, restaurant, and boutique. Elsewhere, museums such as the South African Jewish Museum and the District Six Museum offer more quantifiable insights.
