Some people liken it to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco. It is home to colorful artwork and lovely locals. Walk with me as I take you on a virtual tour of this wonderful village. We will visit the Hemp Embassy and learn about what they are doing to legalize marijuana. We will also visit Nimbin Candles where you how the amazing candles are made by hand. You will also see other shops with cool art as I walk around the street.
