Welcome to Ely. A small town at the end of the road in northeastern Minnesota. A town shaped around family values, rich culture, and everyday adventure.
Ely, MN is a place unaffected by the hyper pace of urban America. A place where your family, friends, and neighbors feel safe every day. A town with a community who selflessly works together to make life better for all. A place where the citizens can still steer the development of the city to fit their ideals and dreams. A place where Elyites gather and connect to develop a better and more simple way of life.
Elyites enjoy breathtaking sunrises to begin their days and stunning sunsets to bring them to a close. We enjoy the calm, quiet environment that surrounds us. The wildlife that traverse our yards are akin to house pets. We especially enjoy how easy it is to get away from the stresses of everyday life.
Elyites end their work day and within minutes can be on the water looking to catch the next walleye dinner. Within minutes we are out on a relaxing walk through the woods, a rigorous hike or embarking on our next big adventure into the vast Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. We regularly round up our family and friends to hang out at the beach or to harvest berries, wild mushrooms, or even wild game.
Elyites have been living this way for generations. We understand that everyday is a vacation when you live in this wonderful area.
Many Elyites were simply visiting Ely when they fell in love with the natural beauty and this way of life. There is something magical when you discover that Ely is the place you want to call home.
Ely, Minnesota where everyday is a vacation.
