Galena is located in the northwest corner of Illinois and is a very historic town. The photo above is the main street through the town and it's historic storefronts are almost completely intact, which is pretty rare. In fact 85% of the town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, which is pretty cool.
Galena is a great place to go for a weekend getaway but probably not for a longer trip. The town is very touristy and Main Street is filled with little shops that cater to the tourists, but it's still very very cool. This part of Illinois is also very hilly, unlike almost the rest of the state. It was a pleasant surprise to see when we got there!
