The City Centre is fine, but suburbia..did anybody ever shout halt to the madness of a non planning strategy, there are concrete block walls, brick walls, hedgerows, paling posts, wire fences, etc.etc. in front of the houses, there's no order or control to what you can have arounf your house. It looks crappish to say the least.
I grew up in CHCH and I will never return to the often grey cloudy place, I'm sure the weather affects peoples moods and I was always moody, anywho there are beautiful things to see there, the mueseum is pretty awsome I'll never forget that, for some weird reason there are a LOT of good looking people in that city too so be careful if youre NOT single and youre visiting with your mates, take my advice and dont go out to the clubs, get an early night especially if youre looking to marry your sweetheart, CHCH has or had the biggest sex industry in NZ and I'm sure it has effected masses.

Hey guys, I found a pretty good site for Christchurch accommodation and Christchurch hotels here if you're headed that way. For me, Akaroa Harbour's definitely a highlight of the area, just to swim with the dolphins. But that's just me, there's also the awesome scenery and for the wine buffs there's a good tipple if you head out to the Waipara area (but that might be a bit far for some). There's also quite a few "adventure activities" you can get up to.
Christchurch has some great cafes and baristas. One of my favourite breakfast cafes is Coffee Smiths They have 2 inner city locations. One in Durham St and the other in Cashel St. Highly Recommended :)
