Napier is small but since you are from a small town this shouldn't be a shock. It's a beautiful city, very friendly, very laid back and welcoming. I suspect that the only issue your son is likely to have is that as a foreigner he will be in high demand - expect the 16 year old girls to be falling all over him

Americans aren't uncommon or unusual in New Zealand (in recent years in particular, its hard to go anywhere without meeting someone that has immigrated from the US).

Yes, in some circles, there is considerable anti-American sentiment BUT it's not anti the American people. This, I think, is an important distinction to make. NZ'ers are very globally aware and keep informed about politics and trade. When I was living in the US I found I knew more about US politics, the parties, the politicians and the issues than most of the American's I interacted with. Many of us don't like what the US is doing in some areas but we know that many Americans don't like these either. Disliking a country's politics and policies is very far removed from disliking its people. American PEOPLE are well-received, American policies are not.
