What are some things to do in Christchurch?

Christchurch is a coastal city with plenty of beaches to explore. One of these beaches is Sumner Beach; it’s a quiet place with long stretches of sand great for quiet walks and wading your feet on the water. New Brighton Beach has a small amusement park by the pier; one of the best things to do there is ride the ferris wheel and watch the sunset from a higher altitude. A good way to explore the city and feel the everyday city life is to take the tram, which takes you around certain parts of Christchurch for a localized sightseeing tour. There’s even a restaurant that’s an actual functioning tramcar serving tourists who want to ride the tramway while having dinner. Take the Christchurch Gondola for great views of the surrounding areas like Lyttelton Harbour, Canterbury Plains, and the city proper. We recommend travelling to Christchurch during the summer season, which is from December to March. Weather is the warmest during these times and it is the most conducive season for day tripping, especially at the beach.
