Nelson, NVPros: It' a neat place to visit without driving far from Las Vegas or Boulder City...
Cons: No place to buy food or drinks, but if you know you are going there, you can bring a picnic lunch and hike to the Colorado River
This is a good place to bring a camping chair, book and read and picnic...Blog about Nelson
