Part of Nelson's charm comes from it's unique shops. Many businesses are only in Nelson and are wonderful because they are one and only stores.

A great street to enjoy historic buildings with incredible stores and restaurants to ensure you don’t go hungry while buying cool stuff we don’t find at home.

I walked baker street and there are many shops that are interesting. There are 2nd hand ships on Baker too. There are also a lot of restaurants that offer quite a variety. The bakery offered gluten free, vegetarian, and regular food. It was very good.

Sadly, many stores and restaurants were closed on Labor Day. The ones that were opened were interesting. I was surprised at all the graffiti in town and at the park.

Several businesses were closed on Sunday. It's definitely not the best day for a full shopping experience.
