“Mom, not another farm stall!”

 

Drives up the West Coast don’t have to be a drag, especially when you have the kids in tow. There is always something new to discover in Cape Town and even farm stalls can be fun if you find the right ones!

 

Be sure to make a day, or even a weekend of your next West Coast adventure, as there is so much to do and see.

 

These 5 West Coast spots promise fun for the whole family this winter:

What is a drive up the coast (or anywhere in Cape Town for that matter) without a couple of stops at local farm stalls? The West Coast town of Hopefield boasts a popular farm stall that tourists and locals love: Moose Farm Stall.

 

Trust us: this is not “just another farm stall that mom just ‘has to’ stop at on the way home”. We’re talking interior decor, handmade produce and gifts, not to mention the freshest croissants and baked goods that money can buy. Dads and kids can tuck into some tasty light meals in the winter sun while mom browses to her heart’s content.

 

Happiness.

A little closer to home, yet still offering that fun family day-out feel, Eden on the Bay never disappoints. Grab an ice-cream cone or a picnic and take a lazy walk down to the lush, rolling lawns overlooking the ocean. Why not rent a couple of bicycles and meander along the cobbled pathways?

 

On a calm day, a family SUP session is sure to work up an appetite that one of Eden’s many oceanside restaurants can satisfy. Eden on the Bay is a pet-friendly venue, so your precious fur babies can enjoy the day with you.
