Advantages: Friendly people
Disadvantages: Not the best place for shopping or sights
Perth is often forgotten about possibly due to its approximity to Dundee which is a better place for shopping but I prefer Perth because of its atmosphere and the feel of the place. When you go there you feel as if you are in a more friendly environment and it would be fai rto say that you feel safer than you would in other major cities. As I said before Perth probably isn't the best place for shopping when compared to Dundee butit does have its fair share of shops which are enough to keep the average shopper busy for quite a while. It also has a lot of small independent shops which you should check out, theres a few good bargains to be found in them.
Parking in Perth can be quite difficult but its true that this is a problem suffered by a lot of towns and cities up and down the country. This problem has been partly relieved by the construction of a new car park which is very near to the town centre.
There are other things apart from shopping which can be done in Perth though. There is a great swimming pool which kids will love and right next to it there is the Dewars Ice Rink. I would also recommend a visit to the AK Bell library to. It is very modern and the building is very eyecatching. It has a cafe where you can get a snack too. The cinema in Perth was refurbished last summer so thats another place to go.
Perth is a nice little place to go for a family day out. There something for every age group to do and with its friendly atmosphere and people it makes a great place for a trip.
