50 Epic Yet Offbeat Things To Do in Cape Town!

ACCUHUNT

Based on 2.5 months in the city, my ultimate guide to things to do in Cape Town.

As a digital nomad, I’m always faced with a conundrum. I can either be close to nature or live in a hip, urban city with incredible food and diverse cultures. I can either have easy access to hiking trails or to music and film festivals. I can either detach myself from everything in the mountains or be plugged into the digital world with fast wifi.

But my recent digital nomad stint in Cape Town changed that. On my whirlwind first trip to South Africa 5 years ago, I knew it was a beautiful city. But I had no idea just how much it would indulge and inspire me.

Golden hour light on the Mountain Trail at Robbers Cave State Park, Okla.

Once my fall races ended in November, I did a major re-think about how I scheduled my time. It seemed I was devoting six days a week for training toward some sort of goal, be it a race or some arbitrary strength metric that usually meant I was sticking close to home every week so I wouldn’t miss a workout.

That meant that I was crowding out some of the thing I loved. It made weekend road trips nonexistent. Any hiking had to be within minutes from my house. It’s very limiting, and it showed: For all of 2018, I only went on two trips outside my city to go hike or climb something. Those were awesome trips, but too few in number. It’s hard to get your outdoor fix when you’re tethered to a schedule that’s…
