Nelson one of Canada’s best small towns

The website the Great Canadian Bucket List has named Nelson one of the best small towns to visit.

Nelson has again been recognized as a great place to visit and live by a national source.

The website the Great Canadian Bucket List named this community as the best small town in BC and one of the best in Canada.

The website states “the town’s laid-back lifestyle, location and quality of life has transformed it into an important arts community – an escape for artists, writers and musicians.”

It goes on to say that the “scenic mountain community has preserved its downtown heritage buildings, and many Victorian-era homes.”

It also notes that the people here embrace all forms of spiritual practice, that organic food and farmers markets are plentiful, it has a healthy outdoor lifestyle and has a “thriving music scene and coffee shop culture.”

Last month, Macleans magazine named Nelson as one of the 10 Canadian places to see in 2014.
