Outside Magazine

Ely, Minnesota was rated one of The Best Small Towns in the August 2009 issue. "There's a reason iconic outdoorsmen like polar adventurer Will Steger and nature photographer Jim Brandenburg call Ely (pop. 3,700) home: It's the main gateway for the 1.3-million-acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. As such, main street is lined with outfitters and outdoor-equipment stores, and even the local radio station, WELY—a quirky polka-and-rock channel—incorporates a North Woods twist: They broad­cast daily 'wilderness shout-outs' to people camped out in the backcountry."
