Raglan is a great place to stay while you are in Hamilton as some of the city’s star attractions are within easy driving distance. Two sights that should top every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Raglan Beach and the ever-popular Mount Karioi. Two other recommended attractions within a short distance of Raglan are the Bridal Veil Falls and the Waingaro Hot Springs.
Raglan is a place of proud sporting traditions. Spend a few hours in the stands of nearby Waikato Stadium, home to the Chiefs rugby union team in autumn and the Waikato Rugby Union in spring. When the full-time siren sounds, follow the throngs of local sports fans to a nearby pub or bar and relive the match highlights over a few drinks.
For a real taste of this fascinating part of the world, consider making a reservation close by in one of the area’s hotel or serviced apartment options. Make reservations for the Raglan Sunset Motel, the Foxgloves Bed & Breakfast, Waingaro, or the Waoku Lodge.
