Cashel Street, Christchurch

4.1
Christchurch's imaginative response to a natural disaster, Cashel Street contains a series of shipping containers housing a community of small but thriving shops. Pedestrianized since the 1980s, this neighborhood suffered severe damage in 2011, when a 6.3-magnitude earthquake caused facades and entire buildings to collapse. Rejuvenated since then, this busy shopping street in the central business district now serves as a major tourist attraction, drawing shoppers and sightseers with its funky stores, food trucks, and weekend markets. Stop by the area to witness Christchurch's spirit of renewal and shop for designer clothing, shoes, food, and handmade souvenirs.
