Nelson makes another bucket list

Nelson is listed among EscapeHere.com’s bucket list of “13 Canadian Towns You Must Visit.”

Nelson is listed among EscapeHere.com’s bucket list of “13 Canadian Towns You Must Visit.”

“For a town of under 10,000 people there is a whole lot going on in Nelson,” reads the story, posted online last week by Bruce Yacatto.

“The skiing in the Kootenay Rockies is sensational. When it’s time for water skis, Lake Kootenay offers any activity you want on and under the water. There are thermal and natural baths and less than an hour away, as is the beginning of the province’s fabulous wine country.

“Nelson is something of an artistic community with a surprising cache of Victorian, Queen Anne and Beaux Arts architecture. The town website claims more restaurants per capita than San Francisco. It also likely has more hippies per capita as the counterculture is bred by American draft dodgers during the Vietnam War and continues on today.”

The other top towns (one for each province and territory)? Legal, Alta.; Forget, Sask.; Flin Flon, Man.; Port Hope, Ont.; Hudson, Que.; Victoria-by-the-Sea, PEI; Saint Andrews, NB; Mahone Bay, NS; Trinity, Nfld.; Dawson, YT; Rankin Inlet, NU.; and Fort Smith, NWT.

Nelson previously appeared on the Great Canadian Bucket List of Canada’s best small towns, as well as Macleans magazine’s list of 10 Canadian places to see.
