Of course, it's not just the sights that make up a city — there's also the people. In this part of Bay of Plenty, there's 66,000 of them.
The national capital, Wellington, lies 230 miles south of Rotorua. Horohoro is 9 miles to the southwest.
A visit to the Agrodome or Rainbow Springs Kiwi Wildlife Park is a great opportunity for some quality family time. Are the little ones still bouncing off the walls? Don't stop yet. Keep them busy with a visit to Paradise Valley Springs and Wingspan National Bird of Prey Centre.
There's no need to venture deep into the forest to appreciate a little greenery. White Island and Lake Rotorua are just two of the appealing urban oases you'll find amid this concrete jungle. Alternatively, get some exercise and keep the kids on the go by walking around Waimangu Volcanic Valley or Mount Tarawera.
Are there any walking tours? Anything interesting on this weekend? You'll discover the answers to any questions you have about your visit at Rotorua i-SITE Visitor Centre.
There's something wonderful about the air that brushes your face when you stand near the base of a glimmering cascade like Tarawera Falls or Okere Falls Scenic Reserve.
At Lake Tarawera and Lake Okareka you can set out on a stroll around the water's edge or simply experience the serenity from the shore. If you're feeling extra lively, ask around if there are any water-based activities listed for the day. Don't miss out on the foraging waterbirds that flock to Lake Rotomahana and Lake Rerewhakaaitu either.
Rotorua offers a number of natural reserves, such as Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland and Mokoia Island. Two more areas to take a look at are Redwoods Whakarewarewa Forest and Mount Ngongotaha.
Wander the quiet halls, study the eye-opening exhibits and talk to the friendly staff. The Tamaki Maori Village and the Rotorua Arts Village are comforting places to compose yourself and maybe even find out something new. Museum nerds also need to check out the Rotorua Museum and Te Puia New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute.
Delve into the secrets of the city's past at the Te Amorangi Museum. Through artefacts, stories and images, the exhibition highlights the defining events and people that have contributed to the growth of the region.
Rotorua offers many important historic attractions. Why not begin exploring this destination's past at the Tama-te-Kapua Meeting House and Buried Village? If you're keen for more, the Mitai Maori Village and the Whakarewarewa: The Living Maori Village should also be on your radar.
Treat yourself to some spiritual nourishment by stopping at St. Faith's Anglican Church, a vital piece of Rotorua's religious heritage.
Spend a while at the Blue Baths and let your thoughts travel back to the past events and people that have helped shape this city into what we see today.
If you're looking to buy some supplies, and perhaps one or two souvenirs en route, plan a trip to Rotorua Central Mall or Rotorua Night Market. For those that don't have a limit, there are some other fantastic shops worth looking through at Redwoods Gift Shop & Visitor Centre.
For a night of entertainment, purchase tickets to see a show at the Tribal Lights Cultural Theatre.
You might feel as though there's nothing else to do after exploring Rotorua's most impressive sights, but don't head off just yet. There are still some surprises left. Why not enjoy a bit more sightseeing at the Skyline Rotorua and the Off Road NZ? There's also plenty to keep you interested at Te Rata Bay and the Racing Rotorua.
