As the main street in town, many of the local businesses are located on Sheridan. It leads one into town and then further to Hwy. 1 to the North Shore and also to Winton, 3 miles from Ely and to the various lake entries.

The street is a set of small and average restaurants, shops, cafes and outfitter's stores. It's nice to walk or drive and stop by in different places. Everything is very concentrated and convenient!
