You’ll Never Run Out Of Things To Do In This Tiny Minnesota Town

Northern Minnesota is known for its beautiful woods and lakes, and its wide variety of recreation opportunities, many of which can be found in state forests, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Voyageur’s National Park. And no town makes for a quintessential “Up North” vacation spot quite like Ely. This town of just a few thousand is the perfect size for getaways, offering plenty of recreation, lodging and entertainment so you will never be bored.

Ely is absolutely worth a visit from everyone, but if you feel like taking a trip closer to the cities – try Taylors Falls for another adventure loaded getaway!
