Nelson's anniversary day on Monday is the perfect time to reflect on what makes living in this region special.
The Nelson Mail wants to hear from readers about what you love about living here as part of our anniversary coverage.
Whether it's strolling along Tahunanui Beach or the Motueka sandspit, watching the sun set at Pohara, biking in Nelson's hills or along Tasman's Great Taste Trail, kayaking in the Abel Tasman, taking in live theatre, or nursing a coffee or craft beer on a warm evening - you can be as detailed and descriptive as you like.
Specifically, we are seeking answers to the following questions:
1. What do you love most about the Nelson-Tasman region?
2. If there was one thing you change about the region, what would it be?
3. What will you be doing for Nelson's Anniversary Weekend?
4. What would you most recommend visitors should do this weekend?
Would a reduction in regional flight prices make you more likely to travel by air?
