We have recently added 3 days to our trip (Yes!) and will spend it in the Nelson area. We decided to stay in the area because there is so much to see and our flight home leaves from Nelson. We are a bit concerned that it's over Easter holiday, April 4th -7th. I hear that most shops and restaurants will be closed on Easter Sunday and Monday. Is this true? Will some be open? We'd just like to know if we can get meals or go to the grocery store. We will have a car and can explore those two days, such as Abel Tasman NP. Then maybe spend Tues/Weds in Nelson and Picton.
Any suggestions other than Picton, Abel Tasman and Nelson to explore? Thanks so much?
We will have traveled up from Athol, Manapouri, Wanaka, Fox Glacier, Punakaiki and Murchison area primarily fly fishing and site seeing. I had written in previously and received great advice. Thanks again in advance.
