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.

I love the walk up and down Baker Street in Nelson and visit the unique shops. Our favourite place for lunch is the Kooteney Bakery as they have a nice selection of gluten free items and nice gluten free bread. Staff are always friendly and helpful and I can call ahead and have them save muffins or bread for me. Love it!

Baker Street Nelson British Columbia in the Kootenay Rockies is a slice of local life. Lots of busy downtown streets full of interesting stores, historic buildings and parks.

Homeless people seem to be everywhere in British Columbia these days sleeping on benches, tent communities and begging on the sidewalk for change. Can't get used to the needle depositories in every washroom.

An experience similar to any downtown
