COMMUNITY

Nelson. Small town cosmopolitan meets the great outdoors

You’ve no doubt already heard great things about Nelson. 

Living here, and practicing medicine here, we can tell you that yes, it is all true. Nelson is a very special place. 

Here, you’ll find all the requisite beauty, outdoor recreation and adventure of rural British Columbia, paired with a storybook small town setting, a walkable and vibrant downtown, arts and culture galore, and a thriving live music and theater scene. Nelson’s unique brand of small-town cosmopolitan offers so much more than you might expect from a town of 10,000 people.

Let’s start by defining terms. People ask whether Nelson is an art town, or a ski town? We’ve been named the best small art town in Canada, and North America’s best ski town. Others might call us a great mountain bike town, boating town, shopping town, foodie town. And we wonder, do we have to choose just one? 

We’d love to tell you about the arts scene and the ski scene over a cup of truly excellent coffee, or a craft brew, followed by a fresh and delicious meal at one of our 30+ locally-owned restaurants. 

We’d tell you about the over 350 restored heritage buildings that form the charming backdrop to an impressive selection of dining, shopping, festivals, live music and performance options. We’d talk about our local ski hill, Whitewater Resort. (We call it powder hound heaven.) It’s a laid- back, nothing fancy kind of place that gets everything just right: really deep snow, plenty of advanced and expert runs and a restaurant with food so good, it inspired a line of bestselling cookbooks. 

We’d also let you know about life on the lake, with the many opportunities for getting outside that this provides. A morning kayak, a winter sail, long summer days of water-skiing and boating, family beach days – life on pristine Kootenay Lake is unparalleled, and many of us choose to live right on the lake for this very reason. 

We’d tell you about the rowing club, the tennis club, the squash club, the cross-country ski club and of course the golf club. We’d talk about the 270 km of mountain bike trails, including plenty of technical single track, and the 182+ trails in our local trail network, ready for you to hike, run, bike or simply take your dog for a walk.

Nelson. Come to play or come to stay.
