Napier
Devastated by an earthquake in 1931, Napier rebuilt itself using the then-popular art deco style of architecture. This is one reason visitors are attracted to this lovely city. Now, 75 years later, there is a silver lining to the disaster with Napier being the only art deco city in New Zealand, a feature that attracts many visitors.
