Cold Drinks and Hot N
When work is finished, and you want some nighttime fun, there are plenty of places in Dunedin to kick back and live it up. Unwind with a Creamsicle beer at one of the bars, or join in a rousing game of Jenga. The warm nights make an ice cold drink and foot-stomping live music a great time for friendship and laughs, and it is easy to enjoy yourself in one of the city’s friendly watering holes. Challenge someone to darts or pool if you want some friendly competition or get out on the dance floor and groove all night.
Sink Your Teeth into
Dunedin has an annual farmers’ market waiting for you to pick out some fresh-farm produce. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, jams, and baked goods are waiting for you here, so bring some bags and pile them full of your pick of foods. Vendors also sell gourmet food items, so it is a good place to find that exotic honey or some tantalizing truffles. There is also an international food mart, whose immense aisles hold delicacies and staple items from dozens of countries and cultures. You can find fresh lychee and lemongrass along with a large selection of frozen and preserved favorites, so make a long list.
Arts to Antiques
Antiques and arts and crafts are a major part of Dunedin’s charm. Nowhere reflects this better than in its streets and shops. There are more than a dozen stores in the city that sell everything from rustic beach furniture to vintage clothing. Paintings and sculptures created by local artists are waiting for you to admire in art galleries, and crafters will find a beautiful selection of beads, charms, and clasps for making jewelry. There are also several Celtic and New Age shops that sell incense, gems, books, and artwork, along with musical instruments and other spiritual items.
