Is Glenelg worthwhile for overnite in late April

We are flying in for one nite in late April before heading out to Barossa Valley. A nice beach town sounds nice, or would we just enjoy staying in Adelaide. Adelaide sounds beautiful also. Karen US

Glenelg isnt what we would call a beach town - more a large suburb of Adelaide - easily reached from the aiport. It is a 25 minute tram ride form central Adelaide - but not sure how late the (Adelaide'sonly) tram operates.

If you are only booking one night in either city or Glenelg, I'd say consider thinking after you arrive at the hotel how much time would you have in the evening to walk about, eat dinner etc. April and days will be a bit shorter and maybe night temperatures cooler. - walking in Adelaide is easy though so either idea is fine.,

Glenelg Beach is a short journey from the airport, also Glenelg has easy access to central Adelaide by tram.

If you like beaches and if staying at Oaks Pier Apartments overlooking the water then I would opt for the beach...as mentioned by Nurioopta you could easily just catch the tram into the city if you have some extra time..

I would select a culinary experience as we do them well here in Adelaide and stay close to that particular venue. Wandering Adelaide along North Terrace and the river can be lovely in April, you will get a feel for Autumn (Fall) and our botanic gardens should be lovely ... If you are really "beach" people then glenelg.. otherwise I'd recommend staying somewhere in the city within wandering distance of the botanic gardens and river and indulging in one of our many wonderful restaurant/wine experiences

Should you want to experience dining from the usual "Top of the World" restaurant Glenelg, and dining is of an acceptable quality, and you can view Adelaide as the restaurant circles clockwise.

It sure is, there are some great apartments right on the beach front at Glenelg,

most are just a short stroll from Jetty Road there are so many restaurants to choose from. We normally stay at Seawall Apartments when ever we are in Adelaide. A quick dinner, a walk along the beach and fantastic free sunsets every night, Glenelg is defiantly worthwhile.
