Melville is such a interesting place to visit. The shops on 7th avenue is mostly second hand shops and restaurants. It is sad to see that quite a few restaurants had to close down, but also new restaurants opened. This is a great attraction for tourists, but you are safe on the streets, but watch your bags and do not walk in the street with back packs and cameras. You will then be a target for petty crime. On certain Avenues are guards and they take care of the parking and also watch over their specific Avenues. They sit on the street corners on their chairs. They are paid by the homeowners. The Melville Koppies are also beautiful.

Be careful of the bag snatchers ,There are a few nice cafes and a few quaint shops .The 27 boxes center has been renovated recently and has a lot of clean eateries and nice African shopping
