Welcome to Nelson!

Once home to settlers and prospectors, Nelson's population soared during the mining boom of the late 1800s. The character of those days remains an integral part of the town. Its streets are flanked by buildings now a century old, with many of them designated historical sites. Today, the brick and mortar house a wealth of coffee shops, restaurants and a number of artists' studios. With a temperate climate and charming setting, Nelson is a natural draw for artists and during summer months their contribution to the community is made public during Artwalk. Prints, paintings and sculptures deck the walls and halls of Nelson's cafes and shops. A recreational getaway, Nelson also boasts vast hiking and water sport opportunities. In winter Whitewater Ski Resort opens, and it features both downhill and cross-country skiing.
