1. Simon’s Town
Simon’s Town is an awesome place to spend a free Saturday afternoon. It is located on the Eastern side of Cape Peninsula. In the heart of Simon’s Town there is a Saturday market that sells clothes, food, and knick knacks for around the house. After that, you can go down to Boulders Beach and see some penguins! No, I’m not kidding – there has been a colony of African penguins at Boulders Beach since 1985 and they are the most adorable creatures you will ever see. The water is also calm and shallow, so it’s easy to swim in (and with) the penguins.
2. Old Biscuit Mill
Located in Woodstock, The Old Biscuit Mill is a must-do for anyone visiting Cape Town. It is only open on Saturday’s from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and features every kind of food you could imagine, plus tons of clothes, purses, jewelry, and more.
3. Wine Tasting
The wine culture in Cape Town is something to be excited about. With dozens of vineyards and wine farms surrounding the city, it’s an easy and delicious activity t o do while visiting Cape Town.
