There were a lot of restaurants, gift shops, cafes. It also gives you a better feel for Auckland’s everyday life as it is lined with small neighborhood stores and businesses.

This area looked great from the bus but many of the shops, restaurants and bars are closed down and many others were closed mid afternoon on a Friday. We did have a lovely lunch at an Indian restaurant at the top of the high street
