There's no reason why a town that attracts people for all 4 seasons can't have store fronts that are open all year round. They wonder what they can do to attract business but when 80% of the stores close after Labor Day and miss ALL the fall color season tourists and the snow lovers, the answer is obvious. They also...

If you come to town, this street has all the shops and restaurants in Ely. We walked around and went in several shops. It was very pleasant.

Nice place to shop for a small town. You can get yourself lost for an afternoon pretty easy here. Not a lot more than that.

I visited the shops on the main drag of town. Most things were open, but most things were poor quality and over priced. I had to go back and return some items, which was a pain. The rock shop was worth visiting but isn't open every day.

Many of the shops on Sheridan Street seem to have been closed up for the season. One shop had soda's unique to Ely- we got a blueberry soda and some Minnesota buzz. We were able to visit Mealey's and found some wonderful unique gifts for my in-laws. If you are in the area, check them out, but if you want... More

Great shops with great deals in the fall, off-peak season. A few places had closed up for the winter but we still found lots to keep our interest on a rainy fall day.
