Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.
Change things up with these side-trips from Johannesburg: Montecasino (in Sandton) and Wild Cave Adventures (in Krugersdorp). Pack the 7th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Gold Reef City. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, contemplate the long history of Mandela House, and get a sense of history and politics at Constitution Hill.
