5 Things to Do Galena Il When the Sun Goes Down

There are a lot of things to do in Galena during the day.  Browse the shops on Main Street, go wine tasting at Galena Cellars, enjoy some skiing in the winter at Chestnut  Mountain Resort, spend a day golfing at local golf courses, and even some goat yoga! Despite all of these great things to do in Galena during the day, we commonly get asked, “What’s there to do in Galena at night?”  For that, we have a few ideas!  Here are 5 of our favorite things to do in Galena at night:

  1. Galena has a long and storied history, so it should really be no surprise that the town also comes with a few scary ghost stories. Ghost tours with companies like Amelia’s Galena Ghost Tours are a great way to explore the history of our town, all while giving yourself a little scare after dark. The Haunted Galena Tour Company, another great tour company offering haunted tours in Galena makes a stop right across the street from Jail Hill Inn!
  2. Put a spin on the classic ghost tour, and spend an evening participating in a haunted pub crawl around Galena. It’s a great way to mix your spirits (both the paranormal and the liquid variety) and enjoy learning more about Galena along the way.
  3. Enjoy a night of magic and illusions at PT Murphy’s Magic Show. There are only 24 seats for each show, promising you an intimate and fun night. You definitely want to book your seats in advance to ensure you get to see the show you want. The magic show lasts for 65 minutes with no intermission.
  4. There are a number of live music venues in Galena. Our Innkeeper can give you plenty of recommendations when you stay, but popular places to go include The Cornerstone, The Grape Escape, Galena Brewing Company, and Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub.
  5. And, of course, there’s always lounging under the stars on Jail Hill Inn’s back patio. Enjoy the peace and quiet, or share a glass of wine and meet your fellow travelers on your own private oasis in Galena.
