Getting Around Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a fairly compact city making it easy to explore on foot. There are some hills, but overall the views make it worth it. The public transportation system relies heavily on buses. There are two companies that operate using the same stops but different routes and fee structures. Lothian is owned by the City Council and offers an all-day ticket and a Bus Tracker with real-time updates for your smart phone via apps. First is a privately owned system that tends to service more outlying areas. Car rental is not really recommended, as parking is difficult and there are many confusing one-way streets. Edinburgh offers two types of taxis: black cabs which can hold up to five passengers and can be hailed on the street, or mini cabs which must be pre-booked.

Shopping, Dining, and Nightlife

Princes Street is the main shopping street and has plenty of tourist-oriented shops. If you are looking for something more upscale, try George Street or head to Cockburn Street for eclectic wares. The food lover will delight in Edinburgh with the wide range of choices guaranteed to suit every taste and budget. Everyone should try fish and chips at least once during their stay. Check out The Elephant House, one of Edinburgh's most famous cafés, as it is where JK Rowling wrote most of the first book in the Harry Potter series. For a fine dining, try The Witchery Restaurant next to the castle. There are plenty of traditional pubs to choose from if you want a drink, or for a more modern dance club go to the Cowgate district with plenty of nightclubs to choose from like Base and Diva. Go ahead and book your airfare to Edinburgh, because you are sure to find something you will love.
