Yes I agree, if you have a car, also go to Strand, not far away and walk on the beach and take photos.Wineries are also great. Enjoy!
Hi! I am considering spending New Years in Stellenbosch with friends (we would be staying just around the corner from Dorp Str). What is it like on New Years? We are in our early thirties, so not exactly looking for a student vibe, but something fun! Any suggestions would be appreciated :)
