Ely was awesome! I haven't been there in over 40 years. There was so much more there than I imagined there would be! I loved the shopping, the museums, and the art galleries. It's a really cool place.

nice small town and enough to explore for a long weekend. It's a long drive up there, so probably wouldn't do it very often.
