Ely, Minnesota (MN) Resorts on the Edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness                Ely Weather      Ely Info










































Ely, Minnesota came to prominence in the late 1800’s as a mining community. Mining and logging were the prominent occupations for Ely residents for generations, and are still an important  element in our local economy today. Then beginning in the early 1900’s, vacationers began coming to Ely to experience the fishing and wilderness unique to northern Minnesota. Unsuitable for farming, the Ely area retained its wilderness uniqueness until today, and has now become a nationally known vacation destination.  Ely has four seasons of recreational activities. Summer is our prime season, but fall colors, spring fishing, winter dog sledding and snowmobiling, and quiet season getaways are just some of the reasons vacation travelers come to Ely Minnesota throughout the year.
