Relaxed, hospitable, and easy to explore on foot, Nelson has a way of always making you feel as though you should stay longer. You can make your way around the mostly two-story town in a day, poking into craft galleries and stopping at cafés, but two days is a practical minimum. You can also use Nelson as a base for a variety of activities within an hour's drive of the town itself.
