KwaZulu Natal DestinationsMorningside, Durban

Morningside, a large gentrified suburb of Durban that spreads from the lower end of the ridge overlooking Durban to just above the Greyville Racecourse in lower Morningside, may have suffered somewhat in recent years from a Cinderella complex, with the rush by young executives and investors to the northern suburbs of La Lucia and Umhlanga, but there has undoubtedly been a rejuvenation of interest in the suburb.

Morningside offers some classic examples of large Edwardian and Victorian style homes with tin roofs and wide verandas, including the State Presidentís residence when at home, large sprawling parks like those of Mitchell Park and Jameson Park, and trendy streets on which a distinctly cosmopolitan atmosphere has attracted a vibey night life to its restaurants, pubs and bistros, particularly around Florida Road.

Morningside, which borders Berea on one side, and the Umgeni River on the other, ranks as one of Durbanís three most popular suburbs - the other two being the Berea and Bulwer, for the very reason that one can get such good value for money here. The established tree-lined streets and accessibility to the centre of Durban and all of her attractions make it even more appealing, so much so that the area has been likened to De Waterkant and Green Point in Cape Town.

The Durban July, a national horse racing event that is held at Greyville Racecourse, in particular acts as a draw card to the area and the Moses Mabhida stadium means that suburbs in and around the Kingís Park area, like lower Morningside, are becoming ideal places to stay.
