Nelson has a diverse population of close to 10,000 people, a hidden gem in the Kootenays.

Nestled in the Selkirk Mountains along the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, it's just 35 minutes from Castlegar Airport, and an hour's flight from Vancouver or Calgary.

It has a vibrant and carefully restored downtown shopping area, and a busy social scene with live performances, arts and music nearly every night of the week.

The variety attracts outdoor enthusiasts, creatives, entrepreneurs, and urban refugees year round.

Known as the “Queen City” for over one hundred years, Nelson has more lovingly restored heritage buildings per capita than anywhere else in the province.

With over 350 heritage buildings, Nelson has earned a reputation as one of the finest heritage cities in Canada.

Dating back to the late 1800s, most historical buildings are within walking distance of each other, so strolling through town is like opening the history books.

There are two self-guided heritage tours available, including a walking tour and a driving tour.

Details and maps are available at the Nelson Visitor Centre.

Touchstones Nelson Museum of Art and History is also well worth the visit.

The changing exhibition offers visitors a range of themes including contemporary art and pop culture, craft and human history.

Learn about the region’s rich cultural heritage in an afternoon or visit the revolving art exhibit in the downstairs gallery.
