Galena River

Birdwatching on the Great River Road Near Galena, IL

Beautiful view of the Mississippi River along the Great River Road Near Galena ILSpring really isn’t too far away, and we find ourselves looking forward to all of the opportunities that come with this warmer change in weather, including birdwatching along the Great River Road. Aside from the beautiful colors popping up from their dormant state over the winter, one of our favorite things about spring is the birds as they flit to and from our feeders around the Inn, and move their way back north after a winter in warmer southern climates.

The Great River Road, which parallels the Mississippi River, isn’t too far from our Galena Bed and Breakfast, either, making us the perfect place for avid birding enthusiasts to stay. Though birdwatching can be exceptional along the Great River Road, that’s not the only reason to explore this scenic stretch of highway. The Great River Road also offers a wonderful connection between the smaller towns of Illinois, like Galena, giving visitors an unparalleled opportunity to explore these quaint communities as they go. When it comes to Galena, in particular, there’s so much to see and do that you’ll want to give yourself a few days to really explore.

Our Galena Bed and Breakfast offers upscale, luxury accommodations just off Main Street, and within walking distance to all of the shops, restaurants, and attractions in downtown Galena. You deserve a getaway this spring.  It’s time to book a room at our Galena Bed and Breakfast before this opportunity passes you by! Continue reading
