The 10 BEST Things to do in Galena This Fall

10 of the BEST Things to do in Galena This Fall Near our Bed and BreakfastThings often look different in Galena from year to year, with new attractions, events, shops, restaurants, and other things added to our list each year. This year, mostly thanks to the COVID-19 Pandemic, things are definitely different in Galena.  Even so, it’s still one of the best weekend getaways from Chicago, and there are plenty of wonderful things to do in Galena this fall.  While many of our favorite fall events have been canceled in 2020, we have some ideas to ensure you have a fun and memorable getaway.

At the heart of your stay in Galena, you’ll still find the same exceptional accommodations offered by Jail Hill Inn, Galena’s #1 rated Bed and Breakfast. The experience of staying with us hasn’t changed too much, but there are a couple of notable adjustments. Breakfast does look a little different, in that we’re offering two choices: You can still enjoy us in the socially-distanced dining room downstairs, or you can request breakfast be brought directly to your suite.  And, in the afternoon, rather than hosting an afternoon wine and cheese reception, we’re delivering hand-crafted trays with your own personalized selection of wine and a delicious assortment of charcuterie, appetizers, and cookies for you to munch on at your leisure.

One thing that hasn’t changed at Jail Hill Inn is our absolute dedication to hospitality, where every detail of your stay is carefully attended to.  This fall, come celebrate the changing of the seasons with us.  Discover new things to do in Galena this fall, and leave with unforgettable memories and plans to return again.  Book your room at our Bed and Breakfast in Galena today!
