Food and words.

Going for a walk can be cathartic, it can help clear your head, or it can just help keep you fit. When you're trying to find a way to stay motivated, having a nice place to walk can be a good incentive. So we want your help to find Adelaide's best walk. From seaside strolls to suburban sidewalks, there are plenty of places to hit the pavement, sand, or dirt track, so let us know which is your favourite.

Whether you're down south at Seaford or up at Semaphore, walking along the beach must be pretty high up on the list. Most beaches will have a walking path along the esplanade, a shared pathway for bikes, walkers, runners, and even rollerbladers. If you're walking along a cliff face, then you also have a benefit of a great view of the beach below. Some even have playgrounds for the kids, or exercise equipment for adults, along the way. Of course there is no need to stick to the footpath, head down onto the beach, and do some barefoot sand walking. This is actually a great way to get fit, and it works your muscles a bit more than a walk along the esplanade.

Or why not take a walk through some of Adelaide's more affluent suburbs, we've got no qualms with coveting here, you could even play a game of House Spotting. Somewhere like Hyde Park or Unley Park would be a great place to start, marvel at some interesting houses, or just gape at the sheer outlandishness of some of these places. It is all a bit of fun, and imagining life inside some of these houses can be a bit of entertainment on your walk.

If you're a fan of longer walks, then maybe you prefer heading along the Coast to Vines Rail Trail. The trail starts at Marino Rocks, and heads all the way down to WIllunga, and like the name suggests you'll get a good view of both the coast, and the sweeping vineyards of the Fleurieu wine region. You'll share the trail with cyclists, and horse riders, so make sure you stay aware. It is a good walk to dedicate a day to, but it probably isn't going to be your daily walking path.

So let us know you top tips for walking around Adelaide, and where you think we should be heading. We'd love to hear what you think, so just join the discussion in the comments.
