Palmy have published a list of the 7 best things to do in their great city, Its almost as exciting as leaving the room when Shortland St comes on the telly.

Top things to do in Palmerston North according to Destination Manawatu's Julie O'Brien
1. Go to The New Zealand Rugby Museum
2. Stand under a wind turbine in the Ruahine or Tararua Ranges
3. Visit the Manawatu Gorge
4. See the godwits at Foxton Beach
5. Shop at the bigger and better Plaza complex
6. Take in the world-renowned Dugald McKenzie Rose Garden
7. Visit Mt Cleese a hillock at the Palmerston North tip named in honour of a certain comedian

Foxton beach huh?...wonder if they suggest tourists walk or maybe put on some form of transport...

...a Mk3 Cortina would be just the ticket.

What a **** list.

On the plus side, you can drive away from it in all four directions. :)

Three of the things aren't in Palmy and another is the city tip. Then they wonder why people think the place is dull. Even Wanganui is more exciting, though admittedly only by a whisker.

I've only been there once and it didn't seem all that bad. Just another city, but those who live there must like it and they probably don't have to fight traffic jams getting to and from work.
There are worse places.

Some people are entranced with the warmth and vibrancy of P.N. - admittedly their last stop was Wellington

Yes there is:

"John Cleese ..... famously declared after a visit in 2006: "If you ever want to kill yourself but lack the courage, I think a visit to Palmerston North will do the trick."

It was funny.

It was funny in 2006, dredging it up now and then trying to counter it with that list is just a bit ****.

Wanganui is heaps better than PN.

I'd rather live in Masterton than PN, really. At least we are in the Wairarapa, have the Rimutaka road close by to buzz up and down and Welly is not that far away. PN is the epitome of boring. Except for 3 decent motorcycle shops there is nothing worthwhile... although the people there are friendly which is a surprise as you think they'd be bonkers living there.

I believe John Cleese, if he says the place sux it does.
Foxton Beach isnt really near Parmy North so it should be scratched from list.

I was taken by Greytown,hadn't been there since I used to shoot at Tearnkihau and Masterton back in the 70's.
Considered moving there,but too well set up here in Ch Ch.
