Rotorua

If you've been to Yellowstone, you'll remember the distinct sulfur smell. Rotorua has the same scent. And like Yellowstone, has geysers, mud pots, hot springs.

There is a lot to do here, but it is also rather touristy.  Definitely see the geothermal attractions. For souvenirs, I found good deals on wood carvings at the the NZ Maori Arts & Crafts Institute at the Te Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve.
