The village of Son features a rich variety of shops, restaurant and coastal culture. Son is a historical harbour by the Oslo fjord, between Hvitsten and Moss.

Son is especially known for its architecture with small, white, wooden houses and small alleys – an architecture normally associated with southwestern Norwegian towns.
Son became a town of artists early in the 20th century. Still it creates a home for a rich selection of authors, painters and all kinds of other artist. You will find several cozy galleries, as well as a coastal culture centre and Son Museum Harbour. About 5000 people call Son home nowadays.
