Visit some markets and stroll around its stalls. The favorite with locals is Harborside Market every Sunday until 2pm. Full of colorful lanes of veggies and fruit and some trucks with great coffee and nibbles. Moore Wilson’s Market opens every day and it’s where the restaurant owners shop. It is also a Deli and fresh food store. Finally, we recommend the Underground and the Night Market, both with buzzing atmospheres, great food and live music. For those Lord of the Rings followers, take a Wellington Movie Tour and experience New Zealand’s film capital.
