Known as “The Queen City”, and acknowledged for its impressive collection of restored heritage buildings from its glory days in a regional silver rush, Nelson is superbly rich with culture. The downtown area (Baker Street and beyond) is packed with good restaurants, cafes and coffee houses, local shops and small art galleries and theatre venues. The summer months hold weekly markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, where locals buy and sell their organic foods and wood/pottery/metal/fabric/etc wares. A city full of culture indeed.
