#3 of 19 in Things to do in Nelson
For a spot of retail therapy in quirky, independent stores, visit Baker Street. 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.

    Worst experience in men's wear I've ever had. Unfortunately came here on three occasions during my life in Nelson and will never be returning. The first time was to rent a highschool grad tuxedo. The second and third times were to find men's wear asa.n adult and the belittleling, abrasive behaviour by the senior sales staff who will try to sell you anything that doesn't fit, have no stock in anything other than polyester/synthetics that they tell you is fine clothing and charge prices on par with fine wool is ridiculous. All alterations are extra charges and all school events come before walk in customers. Abundantly clear that highschool students once a year are their only customers, they feel that they can treat people and their clothing experience as natrowly as possible. I'll drive to the city before I step foot in that store again.
