Introduction ...

When we're planning a trip and want to make reservations or still at home and looking for a place to eat, we usually start by visiting the TripAdvisor website. Once on their website we search for what's available, then check the recommendations and experiences of other people.

Although there are many ways of searching the TripAdvisor website, we prefer to start with the TripAdvisor Tourism page. On the Tourism page you'll find a quick overview of the community, with links to restaurants, lodging, flights, rentals and nearby attractions.

While we are unaware of a TripAdvisor Tourism page that is specific to Nelson, there are nearby communities that are likely to provide the information that you're looking for. If you want to learn more about those communities, the following map should be of help.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Nelson. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.2154, Longitude: -86.5811     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Nelson have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
