Ely is being recreated with loving care and great paint choices in their revitalization projects. Northern Grounds is too new to be listed here, but it is a great coffee shop/wine bar.

Spent several hours walking down Sheridan visiting the shops. There is a little bit of everything for everyone as you walk the street.
