Nelson is located at the junction of Highways 25 and 35 and connects Wisconsin to Minnesota by the interstate bridge over the Mississippi River.
Nelson offers fine restaurants, gift shops, a cheese factory and liquor stores. Castleberg Park has a shelter perfect for picnic lunches.
Next to the village is an area that is three miles wide and 10 miles long - of virgin forest and water, practically untouched by civilization. This area, known as the Tiffany Bottoms, is a sportsman's paradise. This huge section of backwater adjoining the Mississippi has thousands of acres of woods where deer abound. Walking trails and canoeing are available.
