“hustle and bustle of the big little city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

I live an hours drive from Nelson and it is the closest thing to a trip to the big city, West Kootenays style. The downtown core is vibrant and eclectic with a wide array of food styles offered in the local restaurants. Shopping is everything from second used clothing stores to higher end
boutiques. Great place to people watch and and the location is stunning.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Shops close too early, 5:30, & most people were not as friendly as you would expect from this kind of an area. Very little in the way of souvenirs or interesting items.

“Heritage Village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

A whole street of Heritage (1899) buildings restored and used for commercial venues. About 8 blocks of glorious shopping and eating.

“The Baker Burn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I'd take Baker St over Robson or Granville any day. It has tons of great boutique shops and all the great food you'd expect from a city 10 times it's size.
