Ely has quickly become a destination to spend your day shopping, having lunch and more! Did you know we have the only ALL SAUCE store, a creamery, bar and grill, and more! Start your day with a float in Cloud 9's float pod. One of only 2 in Iowa! Next grab a leisurely lunch at Odie's Bar and Grill. Stop by The Downtown Dachshund and CR Whiskey to do a little shopping and end your day at Dan and Debbie's Creamery. If you like to ride your bike, follow the Hoover Trail Nature bike path from downtown Cedar Rapids right to downtown Ely. Show your support for small business and enjoy your day in Ely!
