boutiques, art galleries and music stores. Formerly Wellington’s red light district, the introduction of a law banning alcohol has since moved many of its troublemakers out of the neighborhood.

If you want to experience Wellington culture, all you have to do is walk down Cuba Street. In the daytime, you can enjoy numerous quality cafes, restaurants, boutiques, and ice cream shops. At night, you can find quite a few popular, high-energy bars. There are usually several live musicians at any given time. Cuba Street is colorful, hipster, and bohemian, just like Wellington. Dedicate a few hours to walking up and down the brick road so you can take the time to enjoy Cuba Street.

When in Wellington Cuba Street is a must! It's very long and has heaps of different shops to go looking in, and also a few different restaurants. You are bound to find something to your taste along there. Also on the weekends there are people who sell paintings, do tricks or anything really. Make sure you check it out!
