Everything is so easy to get to around the city. Sometimes parking is a problem but even if you have to park some distance away, the walks are always nice.
Nice small city with beautiful gardens and beaches and with sun. Close to rotorua, taupo. I like mt maunganui and papamoa.
A little hard to drive around. Not well sign posted. Tend to come across signs & have very little time to change lanes.
You can visit the beaches here, they have a lot of beaches and nearby area. The sightseeing is marvellous.
We did all the touristy things. We climbed the mt, picked blueberries and went to the jazz festival.
