    Default 3 days in hamilton

    Hi, we are planning for 3 days stay at Hamilton for the xmas vacation. I managed to reserve a motel near CBD area. Can anyone suggest good places we can visit which is good for kids ?

    Zoo is nice, nice and shaded. Lake is awesome with amazing playground..grab a cuppa and relax whilst kids play. The museum on Victoria street. Hamilton gardens fr sure(free). Nice café in there. Drive out to Cambridge bit biased as where we live but beautiful town, good commute to Hamilton CBD. Maungatautri reserve is a little drive bit worth it, reserve so lots of birds, bush etc.

    Hamilton is such great value for money - three days will feel like twice that :-)

    Yes 3 days are not enough to look around all the places there, we live in Auckland, so just 1.5 hr driving from here to Hamilton.

    Since its a holiday season the motels are too expensive to book for long time.
