Don't limit yourself to Alicedale, because Eastern Cape contains numerous cultural and scenic attractions waiting to be explored. Grahamstown, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west, and Kirkwood, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northeast of Alicedale are good spots to check out if you have the time.
While you are staying in Alicedale, don't forget to see Grahamstown. Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) away, this regional transport and shopping hub is where you can find Cathedral of St. Michael and St. George, 1820 Settlers National Monument and South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity. Rhodes University and Observatory Museum are among the many other points of interest that should be included on everyone's schedule.
Discover the Eastern Cape (province) cuisine by taking your tastebuds for a tour of regional cafés and restaurants. Dawdle over a Chardonnay or Merlot. Both delicious. To enjoy with a meal.
If you're vacationing in Eastern Cape on the 30th of November, join the party during the nation-wide St Andrews Day celebrations.
No matter how far you have traveled and no matter how long you stay, memories of Eastern Cape will remain with you forever.
