Casino/Boardwalk complex

by rcsparty

The Casino in PE is in the middle of the Boardwalk shopping complex, which consists of a bunch of shops and restaurants surrounding a pond or lagoon. The casino is usually full of activity and is a great place to stop after dinner at one of the restaurants in the complex. There is a bar in the casino that is usually crowded early in the night with some sporting event on the big screen or karaoke night. With the minimum bets fairly low on most tables, especially since they are in Rand, you can spend a long time in the Casino without losing (or winning) much money.

A JOURNEY TO ADVENTURE ABOARD THE "APPLE EXPRESS".

by PEE-WEE

The Harbour at Port Elizabeth is the terminus of a fascinating little train called the Apple Express.
It is a narrow- gauge line that begins 285 kilometres away at a place romantically named Avontuur.(adventure).
The trains are mainly used to transport fruit from the Long Kloof orchads, but atweekends and holiday periods special sight-seeing trains run as far as Loerie,offering day long return excursions along some of the most spectacular parts of the line.

The train leaves Port Elizabeth hauled by a chunky little steam locomotive with shining brasswork and shrill whistle, bustles past the Walmer residential area and through thick bush on the plain between the mountains and the sea.

After crossing a high bridge over Van Stadens Gorge, the line leads westward into rugged country covered with bush and noted for its flowering aloes.
The massive piles of the Elandsberge and Groot Winterhoek mountains dominate the landscape.

There is a steep pass into the valley of the Gamtoos before the train reaches Loerie.
From Loerie, the Apple Express reaches a small junction where one branch swings north to Patensie and the other continues west,crosses the Gamtoos River, draws closer to the coast and ,after a stop for water at Humansdorp, reaches the mouth of the Long Kloof.

In spring and summer the kloof is ablaze with wild flowers and is covered with kilometre after kilometre of orchards.
The smell of blossom,or the fragrance of ripe fruit during the picking season,fills the air.
Mountains and hillocks crowd close on the north and south sides of the valley.

The Apple Express then chugs on to its final destination, to be loaded up with the harvest of the Long Kloof before turning back for the return journey to Port Elizabeth.

Port Elizabeth

by IIGUANA

When we saw Port Elizabeth in the road map, we thought it would be a nice place to stop over and stay for a while, to see what's on it. It seemed like a nice "town". Instead of that, we arrived on to a huge city, with a huge port and not very nice at all.
It's a rather very industrialized city, with a few beaches, but not more than that. It has nice restaurants and shops, but it's a city like many in the world. So unless you're really tired and you've got to stop somewhere, I'd recommend you to pass it by
