The best way to have a well-rounded trip would be to include the West Coast National Park for its Postberg flowers, wildlife and birding, some of the quaint West Coast Towns like Paternoster, Yzerfontein and Saldanha, for their laid-back atmosphere and fresh seafood, the Cederberg for its rock art and mountain beauty, Wuppertal for its interesting history and Citrusdal for the beautiful orange orchards.
Darling is also well known as a cultural experience, with the Eva Perron theatre and culinary delights. The entire flower area has become well-known for its vineyards and boutique wine cellars, and the ShowMe West Coast Wine Route will give you options, whichever route you take. If time allows, the flowers in the north, though further away, around Vanrhynsdorp and Springbok are glorious and well worth the trip.
Situated at the foot of the Cedarberg, Citrusdal is known for citrus fruit farms.

When you're in the town, be sure to check out the Latsky Radio Museum which houses many historic and interesting radio sets, both domestic and military. Stop by at the nearby town of Nieuwoudtville and view the beautiful waterfall, and head to the Church Hall to see if they have pancakes on sale.
