Christchurch has lots to offer

On one of my regular trips to Christchurch last week – using my preferred rental car company New Zealand Rent a Car – it was good to see even more progress in the city.

Every time I’m there I’m happy to see the cordon has been reduced and the the city full of people.

One of the exciting new developments is to see New Regent Street is on the verge of re-opening. This pleases me as this historic will be the first shopping precinct to RE-OPEN in the city centre.

Existing Businesses Reopening ( So, welcome home to you all)

Moko Cafe

Young’s Jewellers

Cafe Stir

Hot Damn! Lingerie

NEW Businesses to the Street ( Welcome to the city centre)

My next blog will be about New Regent Street in detail but wanted to give all locals and travellers a "heads up" about this exciting news. This is me checking out the progress!

While  in Christchurch I recommend you use this online map  – What’s Open provides the most comprehensive guide to What’s Open in Christchurch, NZ. Very handy!

  1. I tried sending “What’s Open” an e-mail but the contact us on their web page didn’t work.
    We took our boys to Christchurch for a special family day out/birthday treat recently and enjoyed time playing Laser Strike, lunch at Restart and a swim at Jelly Park. Christchurch is brilliant.
