Out and About in Melbourne
Wine on the patio? Dancing? Leisurely strolls through museums? Just 15 miles from the airport, the cultural capital of Australia has so much to offer travelers that it seems you couldn't get to it all from the hotels in Melbourne. The city's espresso culture has been voted best in the world, and the cafes in the St. Kilda neighborhood make espressos, lattes, and cappuccinos that would make Rome and Paris blush. You can take several days to enjoy the wealth of museums, dedicated to Australian heritage, maritime history, and art, scattered all over the city, where cheap hotels in Melbourne may be found. If you like the ocean, book a room at one of the beach hotels in Melbourne, and head out to Brighton Beach and take a dip in the Pacific.
Eating and Drinking
Once you emerge from the Pacific, sate your appetite at one of Melbourne's world-class restaurants. Get out of the city center and grab a bite in one of the Spanish restaurants in Fitzroy, or head to Brunswick for a Lebanese kebab. Or choose to stay at one of the many hotels in Williamstown and stroll along the waterfront each night, sampling the fresh seafood while enjoying the view of the Hobsons Bay.
