So what's the best way to get around Melbourne? I say it depends. Where am I going? What am I doing? Am I in a rush? That being said, Melbourne is a great city to wander about on foot. Every morning I get up and take a 50 minute walk into the city for work. It's great! Really wakes me up and gets me ready for the morning. If I'm running a bit late, I'll hop on my bike instead. Both give me a fresh outlook for the upcoming day, and I get to discover the city along the way!
