LOVE the unique shops and galleries, got a great pedi at Roots to revive my feet after Quetico portages, the Chocolate Moose, Rockwoods, Sir G's, and The Front Porch all offer delicious dining and treats, no trip is complete without locating more "must have" trip gear at Piragis.

Typical very small town experience tailored to the tourist, canoeist, fisherman and of course the shopper, Well worth a stroll down the two parallel streets to see if you meet someone you might know. Also send yourself back home on the local web cams accessed from the Ely website.

Sheridan street with all the gift shops, restaurants, bait shops, and bars is everything you want to see while walking up hill to the park and perhaps take in a ball game when the American Legion teams are playing. 4th of July parade is a hoot.

I must visit Sheridan Street, each year to find the gifts to take home. I love all the Northwood gifts.

Great Main Street feel! Lots of shops carrying everything from t-shirts/sweatshirts to camping gear to rocks and everything in between. Parking can sometimes be a problem but usually you can find a spot or better yet, park and walk to truly enjoy the experience.

Ely is a beautiful town, though not much going on at night there. Folks really using it as a launching pad for a boundary waters trip. I will say that you can buy all the equipment you need at the outfitting stores, some of which are open till 9pm.
