Nelson has that small-town feel with big-town vibes thanks to its vibrant arts scene and culinary offerings from all corners of the world. The picturesque mountains, stunning Kootenay Lake, and famous big orange bridge might be what you envision when you think of Nelson, but it is the sense of community spirit that makes Nelson what it is. This is a place that people can call home.
