 Enjoy Illinois


A cozy small town satisfies big-city tastes.

Nestled in the Mississippi River Valley, Galena strikes the perfect balance between historical charm and modern-day style. Carefully preserved nineteenth-century buildings house attractions, restaurants and inns. You could easily spend a full day shopping here—and another day golfing, kayaking on the river, and tasting wine in nearby vineyards.
