Book Mountain View Villa Luxury Lodge for your vacation rental and be assured of a strategic base or center from where you can check out Blenheim’s touristy spots.
Rent a bike and do the Blenheim wine crawl. The town has about 30 different wineries to visit. Important: pace yourself so you don’t get tipsy. Blenheim is perhaps one of the few places where one can “drink and bike.” (Wink, wink.) You can’t vacation in Blenheim (or at any town in Marlborough, for that matter) without drinking the region’s famous Sauvignon Blanc.
To know more about the history and culture, the sights to explore are: the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre where vintage aircraft are on display and Marlborough Museum which houses exhibitions on the region’s fascinating wine-making lifestyle and the enthralling history of the indigenous Maori people.
If you prefer to simply walk for leisure or exercise, go to the rose-filled Pollard Park or Japanese-themed Harling Park, which, by the way, is also an ideal picnic spot.
