Baker Street, Nelson

An area that prides itself on its locally owned businesses selling local wares, this historic district provides plenty of opportunity to pick up a one-of-a-kind item or stop for coffee. The street's character-laden facade was restored in the 1980s as part of the city's project to maintain and preserve the district.
