Because Wellington is a city of 370,000, it has great shopping, trendy and traditional cuisine choices, and reliable and available transportation. Wellington also offers cultural opportunities, such as Ballet, theatre, The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra along with other musical performances, and the interactive Museum of New Zealand. For urban walking, the waterfront area which surrounds the spectacular harbour has elegant landscaping along its delightful promenade.

However, just a few miles outside of Wellington, the country life exists. Along the western coastline is the Kaptiti coast, which offers lovely sunset views of Kaptiti Island, the famous bird sanctuary, and the ocean. The warm climate and luxurious amenities appeal to retirees and vacationers alike.

North of the city is the Hutt Valley, which is surrounded by lush green hills. Outdoor activities abound, such as hiking and mountain biking trails winding through the bush and along the coastline. Also for motoring enthusiasts, there are plenty of four-wheel drive tracks to explore the countryside.
