Auckland, New Zealand

Kim Cooper | May 25, 200210:37 PM     1

Hi -- We are considering Auckland as a place to retire to. We are under the impression that the weather there is closest to the San Francisco Bay Area of the cities in New Zealand. We will be going there to visit over Christmas and New Year. Any suggestions for restaurants, hotels, other things to see and do; especially for someone who is thinking of living there as opposed to touristy. We are not very outdoorsy and I'm afraid we're a bit intellectual. But we are very into great food of all kinds, we love English breakfasts, and we are tea drinkers. Since we'll be retiring (or semi-retiring) there, the budget will be limited, so we're looking for good and not too expensive.
