‘Windy Wellington’ may routinely live up to its weather-related moniker, but it’s not blowing hot air to suggest that this cosmopolitan city is one of New Zealand’s finest.
Rife with restaurants, brimming with bars and boasting one of the liveliest cultural scenes this side of the Southern Hemisphere, the Wellington skyline is a welcome sight along the shores of Cook Strait.
Whether it’s a congenial stroll through town with several stops at some of New Zealand’s hottest bars, an afternoon spent meandering through some of the country’s most culturally significant museums and art galleries, or a trip to the raucous Wellington Sevens international rugby tournament, there’s always something to do in this charmingly vibrant town.
