Explore one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Amazing views. Award-winning food. Relaxing beaches. Subtropical rain forests. Polynesian culture. Glistening waters. Hiking trails. Hip cafes. We could go on and on, but we're guessing that you get the point. With all of these things to offer, it's no coincidence that Auckland stands as the largest city in all of New Zealand, and one that can't seem to grow fast enough for the number of newcomers looking to join the lifestyle. You will likely fall in love as well, but, for the sake of responsibilities you have waiting for you back home, we suggest you get on the airplane for your return flight.

At the Auckland Domain, you'll drive through Auckland's most storied park, which is home to cricket grounds, the Auckland War Memorial Museum and the beautiful Wintergarden.

Going through Parnell, you will scope out beautifully-restored, colonial-style houses and mansions in Auckland's oldest suburb. Along Tamaki Drive, you will see one of the most beautiful city drives in the world, covering Auckland's famous shoreline. At Mission Bay, you'll want to dig your toes into the sand at the locals' favorite spot for relaxing.

Drive through Titirangi, which is Maori for "Fringe of Heaven", on the way to spectacularly beautiful Waitakere Ranges with its subtropical rainforest, amazing black sand beaches and native flora and fauna. Unique houses and art exhibits cling to the beautiful Manukau Harbor at the southern end of the Waitakere Ranges.

This day with a local will prove to you why this is considered one of the most livable and lovable cities in the world.
