Adelaide is one of the larger cities in Australia. The interesting part of this city is it was entirely planned. Not only was it planned, but South Australia is an entirely free colony. South Australia is the only state in Australia that was settled by free people. This city is a one square mile with every road heading north and south or east and west. There is one road that cuts the city in half and is named King William. The neat thing about the streets though is every street is named after a commoner. So, every time a street crosses over King William the street changes names.
This city really makes me think black and white pictures. It is a really old looking city, and has done a lot to try to preserve as much as its heritage as possible.
The city is scattered with cool pieces of history and neat pieces of art. The picture of Pop-Eye III is an 80 year old "river" cruise that even the Queen has taken. I say "river" because really it is a damed lake, that takes about 40 minutes to cruise slowly around.
One place you should not miss if you come to explore Adelaide is Haigh's Chocolate. It is an amazing chocolate place that hand-makes amazing chocolate and other candy.
I really enjoyed my time in Adelaide, but I will be honest, do not put much time in your schedule to explore this small town. My favorite thing about Adelaide is the amount of parks in the city. The city has five parks inside the square mile, and surrounded by parkland all around the outside.
What is a favorite hidden gem you have found in a city.
