Long Description:
This classic Dairy Queen was closed for the season, however it is still a favorite of locals and tourists alike; us included.

This Dairy Queen is just one of a few that still remain from the 1950s in Canada. We are always pleased that it is still there when we visit Nelson.

The site for this DQ may well have been carefully researched as it happened to be situated beside the toll booths for BOB, the Big Orange Bridge, which opened in the 1950s.

There motto was at the time: "Jump out, run over and get an ice cream cone while waiting in line." The toll booths are long gone, but this DQ lives on. The opening of the bridge would have ensured a great increase in traffic past this Dairy Queen location.
