January is coming to a close. To me, January always feels like the real heart of winter. The excitement and energy of the holiday season is gone, and it seems like a long, long time until spring. It is cold in the Midwest, and the days, while growing longer now, are short. Sigh.
The best way to escape from the doldrums is to plan several Illinois weekend getaways at well-spaced intervals. Lucky for us all, the perfect moment for the first one is just around the corner, during the President’s Day / Valentine’s Day long weekend.
Our Galena Inn is situated in the heart of this historic town. A simple stroll is like walking through the past, since a good 85% of the buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. Architecture buffs will delight in the many Italianate, Greek Revival, and Queen Anne homes that are lovingly maintained.
We have a number of tantalizing packages for your Galena Vacation. Let us ply you with champagne and fine chocolates. Or enjoy a special Valentine Weekend Romantic Candlelight Dinner at three lovely settings: appetizers at our Galena Inn, dinner at nearby Goldmoor Inn, and finally, dessert at the DeSoto House Hotel. It’s a fun and different twist on the romantic dinner.
Take in the sights of Galena, IL, and the surrounding area, or simply relax together at the inn. Browse our music collection and listen to a favorite tune while playing a game. Enjoy the company of others during our Beverage Time each evening. Soak in the outdoor hot tub. Relax.
See you soon!
