This cam is looking up Sheridan Street in downtown Ely. It is sponsored by Northern Grounds coffee shop on the South West corner of Sheridan Street and Central Avenue. Looking up Sheridan Street, the camera is 1/2 block west of Northern Grounds on the same side of the street. The view in winter is much different than in the summer, so check back in all seasons. Watch the hustle and bustle of Ely’s main street, and watch it change through the seasons. This camera view will also give you a good idea of what the weather is like here in the Northwoods on any particular day.
Thank you for your kind e-mails telling us how much the Sheridan Street webcam, and all of our cams, mean to you. We didn’t realize how much. We are always looking for new webcam opportunities and locations. If you have one in mind, please let us know.
This camera is looking “up,” east, on Sheridan Street in downtown Ely. This is the “main highway” to the majority of Ely resorts and Canoe Trip Outfitters in Ely, the Canoe Capital of the World, the Center of the Minnesota Arrowhead Region, also known as The End of The Road. In summer you will see vehicles with canoes and camping gear headed up Sheridan Street. In winter you may see vans and trucks with dog sledding gear and sled dog compartments or cars topped with ski equipment. Whatever the season, you will want to stop back often to see “what’s happening” in downtown Ely.
Although the angle of this camera has change slightly, there is still plenty of room on the sidewalk in front of the cam to include yourself and friends in the image. Many visitors have told us they have their friends back home “capture” a webcam image of them waving to the folks back home. Ask your family or friends to do the same when you are here. Send us a copy, and we will post it to the www.elyminnesota.com Web site.
This camera is sponsored by the Northern Grounds and A Stay Inn Ely; please stop in and say thank you to the friendly staff and have a Stay at the Inn.
