Probably the most diverse and cosmopolitan of all New Zealand cities, there’s some history here as well as great sightseeing. Start with the Auckland Harbour Bridge, Cornwall Park and Waitemata Harbour. Shopping is best on High Street and the nightlife centers around Viaduct Harbor. As cities go, it’s pretty easy going.
