Nelson, British Columbia
Perched on the shores of Kootenay Lake in the heart of the Selkirk & Kokanee Mountains, the city of Nelson sets itself apart by offering a rare blend of outdoor adventure and cosmopolitan sophistication of arts and heritage (map below!). Downtown is lush with gardens, boutiques, and unique restaurants that offer a social feeling of big city life in a classic Victorian setting. The summer creates a mecca for hiking, golfing, and water sports while the abundant winter snow transforms the terrain at Whitewater Resort for world class skiing and winter adventures.
It's an awesome place to live, just ask the physicians who live here:
