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.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
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!
