"NELSON...a very sunny place" Nelson by pepples46

Nelson Travel Guide: 98 reviews and 194 photos

in fact, Nelson prides itself as the sunniest spot in the Country! I can't confirm or deny that, but I know for sure, its pretty warm all year around
an othe fact I know is that Nelson is the oldest City in New Zealand. many Streets bear the name of the early immigrant ships, like Whitby, Arrow or Mary Ann.
these days, Nelson has so many attractions, impossible to count them all here and Nelson is the Gateway to many National Parks, Beaches, Art Studios, Galleries....Vinyards, those glorious Vinyard Garten Restaurants etc, etc..
and this Restaurant/Pub here is one of the best frequented in Nelson itself. a former Insurance Building, now a very good 'Waterhole' with great food to boot. the Menu has something to offer for everyone.

.....and the Sunsets are to 'die' for, the end of an other day in Paradise

    Nelson sounds like a great place. I'm already in search for destinations for a projected trip to NZ next year. Having that much sun Nelson may be the place for some relaxed days at the beach.

    I don't know about the wine here but the beer in Nelson was one of the best in all of NZ. Thanks for reminding me of one of my favorite towns in Kiwiland.
