From Addo to Ironman. From Richmond Hill to the Yacht Club. Many of our visitors ask about activities in and around Port Elizabeth. Local blogger Shefetsweonsafari recently started to pin down the A to Z of local activities but never completed the list so we decided to add to it and make our own.
Here you go, have fun!
A is for Addo and there is also the Airforce Museum
B could not be for anything other than The Boardwalk, but there’s also beaches, Bridgestreet and Baywest
C is for Cricket and the Campanile
D is for the Donkin reserve … of course
E is for Emlotheni Memorial Park
F is for the Feather Market Center but lately there’s also Food Truck Friday for a flipping good night out.
