My two favorite shops were Steger Mucklucks which has the mucklucks (and some other great items)... and Wintergreen Northern Wear. There are also some small galleries I thought were interesting.

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.

Ely is a fun place to visit. It's a very cute, old town. Lots of unique nature shops, small cafe's and famous Steger Mukluks. Several things are made locally. Just park, walk and shop.

The street is a set of small and average restaurants, shops, cafes and outfitter's stores. It's nice to walk or drive and stop by in different places. Everything is very concentrated and convenient!

Almost everything in Ely is on this street. Even the town park. This place is a tree huggers paradise.
