Granada is an amazing city. Definitely one of my favoorites in Spain along with Sevilla. When you think of Spain... tapas, gypsies, drinking... Granada has it all. Awesome food and fun nightlife. Good vibes and laidback people. Apparently a lot of kids from wealthy spanish families move down to Granda to live the hippie lifestyle for a couple of years and i can see why.
Insider Tip:The albayzin is my favorite area of Granada. Check out the mirador vantage point at the top of the hill for amazing views of the city and alhambra. I also enjoy getting lost in the labyrinth of streets that makes up the albayzin and you cant beat the free tapas. most traditional tapas bars in granada offer free tapas with the purchase of a beer. be patient and wait for your free food!
