If you were only spending five nights in the Auckland area, what would you prioritize? Would you stay in the city the whole time, or would you venture out? Is it worth heading out to Waiheke Island for a couple of the days?
I ask because–surprise, surprise–I’m headed to Auckland for five nights and I’m a bit overwhelmed with all the options.
I’ve already decided against heading down to the Hobbit town, as awesome as that would be. Adventure travel is probably out too, unless there’s an option for one person to hang out while the other one adventure-ers.
But there’s so many beautiful things to see right outside of Auckland, and so many cool things to do in Auckland itself.
What would you prioritize? Has anyone visited Waiheke and the wineries out there? Was it worth the time?
Also, what food places would you list as your must-haves?
