So why not make your way to nearby Hillcrest and Birkenhead and explore their unique charms?
There are countless reasons why so many people head straight for the city centre. Harbour Bridge and the Auckland Zoo are just two of them. The Auckland War Memorial Museum and Auckland Town Hall are a couple more of the area's greatest draw cards.
Leave the children with a babysitter and swing by for some fun at the SkyCity Casino and the Sky City Casino.
Want to give the noggin a workout? The Artspace, the Auckland Art Gallery, the Artstation and the John Leech Gallery are a few recommended cultural places.
If you luck out and get stuck with some wet weather, take cover at the Museum of Transport and Technology and the Museum of Transport & Technology Aircraft Site. The captivating collections will be sure to keep your imagination buzzing and your clothes dry!
You can't quite beat the buzz of excitement when a show is about to begin. Watch the curtains go up at the Aotea Centre, New Zealand Film Archive and the Civic.
Kids can be wonderful travel companions, particularly if you take them to the right attractions! For an exciting family day out, visit the University of Auckland Library, the Birkenhead Public Library, the Auckland Central City Library and the Auckland National Library of New Zealand.
Are the kids getting restless with all the history and culture? Have some time out and check out one of the local family friendly attractions. Parnell Baths and Grey Lynn Paddling Pool are popular choices.
Mount Victoria, North Head, Viaduct Harbour and the Parnell Rose Gardens are ideal spots for nature enthusiasts to spend some time outdoors.
Listening to waves splashing against the shoreline can be quite calming. Let your problems wash away at Takapuna Beach, Narrow Neck Beach and Cheltenham Beach.
If the chaos of city life is tiring you out, head to one of the nearby local parks. Auckland Domain, Myers Park, Albert Park and Western Park are delightful spots to take a relaxing stroll or read a book.
For some, it's not a holiday if you aren't by the water. Gulfwind Sailing Academy and Penny Whiting Sailing School are some top aquatic adventures.
Quite often, the easiest way to get to know the locals is by hanging out at the shops. Be sure to call in to Queen Street Shopping District, Victoria Park, Auckland Fish Market and Victoria Park Market.
Head over for an intriguing history lesson at Kinder House, Old Government House, the University Clock Tower and Princes Wharf. Reading about them in a textbook just doesn't compare!
Uncover the region's spiritual side or just take a moment in the peaceful surrounds of St. Patrick's Cathedral, St. Paul's Church, All Saints Anglican Church and Holy Trinity Cathedral.
