What a lovely city and Main Street. We've been twice so far and want to meander more through this area... In fact we booked an extra two days just to enjoy it at a leisurely pace...unique shops and the friendliest people anywhere !!

Baker street in nelson was very interesting! A lot of the old buildings have been restored on the inside but keep that outside charm. Cool shopping stores, people are kind, so all around great place to a load off for some good food and drinks.
