New Plymouth

(4/5 based on 3,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: zoos & aquariums, historic sites, museums
Where other cities run, New Plymouth prefers to stroll. With a laid-back atmosphere, sunny climate, pristine parks, and an abundance of art galleries, a trip to New Plymouth offers plenty of delightful relaxation. Take a gentle coastal walk, admiring the views of the water sparkling under the persistent sun. Meanwhile, Mount Taranaki looms above, dwarfing the city and beckoning hikers to the trails of its national park.
