There is much to do when "lingering on long street" from finding new cafes, restaurants, shops, hideouts to happy hours, new friends, activities and more.

The fact that you can still actually walk on the pavements of one of the main streets in Cape Town should be celebrated and not taken for granted...try the same thing in the main street of either Port Elizabeth or Durban, and see how far...More

The street links you with the main places in the city. If you want to take red line bus city there is a stop there. It's full of colour and life, a nice walk during the weekend. In the week it's a lonely walk.

General rule of thumb, everything in CT closes at 7/8pm unless in the Waterfront. But long street bars and clubs are open till late.

Also agree with TravelfeetZA : i won't do shopping on this street. Keep a one hour walking to visit it and then have diner somewhere and some bar music. That's it! There is nothing special on this street for shopping.
