Greytown, New Zealand is the perfect place to putter. Walking up and down the main street, we discovered a bevy of tastes and saw the skills of many Kiwis who have chosen to leave Wellington for the charms of this appealing town, that was settled in 1854, the country’s first planned inland town. It was going to be the provincial capital but a river flooded and the railway passed the town by.

The good news is that the railroad is back, coming through nearby Woodside, and offering many city residents convenient transport to avoid driving steep mountain roads and gliding easily into the city center from this food lover’s paradise.
