There have been some big changes to downtown Galena IL this summer in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we think they’ve been pretty great changes for the most part. We recognize that travel feels a little different to all of us right now, but we hope you feel comforted knowing our entire town is working hard to create a safe and healthy environment for all who choose to visit! You can find what we’re doing, specifically, on our website.
Travel studies released recently have shown that getaways that are closer to home and to smaller towns are considered to be one of the best options. That is great news for Galena, as we’re located just under 3 hours outside of Chicago, and easily drivable from other major cities like Milwaukee, Minneapolis and St. Paul, and Des Moines. When you get to downtown Galena IL, you’ll notice a few things are different!
