Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Explore hidden gems such as Grotto Beach and Franschhoek Pass. Get out of town with these interesting Cape Town side-trips: Stellenbosch (Stellenbosch University Botanical Garden & Wine Tours & Tastings), Stony Point Penguin Colony (in Betty's Bay) and Suider Paarl (Fairview Wine and Cheese & Spice Route Destination). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Clifton Beaches, take in the dramatic natural features at Twelve Apostles, take in nature's colorful creations at Company's Gardens, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Biscuit Mill.

To see other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Cape Town trip itinerary maker.
