Have the Best Couples Getaway to Galena

1. Enjoy Delicious Dining

Fantastic restaurants and cozy taprooms await you in Galena. Enjoy a break from cooking dinner and make reservations at a romantic eatery tucked off Main Street or a little way outside of town. If you’re looking to stay in town for dinner, Log Cabin Steakhouse or Fritz and Frites are excellent options. For a meal with a beautiful view of the Mississippi, head over to the dining room at the Goldmoor Inn. 

Relax with a couple of drinks at one of Galena’s local establishments. You have the option of a local distillery, winery, or brewery!

When you stay at Farmers Guest House, you’ll get to wake up every morning to one of the best breakfasts in Galena, prepared fresh by the talented Susan Steffan. 

2. Go Sightseeing

Galena is known for being a picturesque town. Its beautiful historic buildings are nestled among green, rolling hills and surrounded by sweeping open skies. Consequently, there’s plenty to see here! 

Galena provides an abundance of natural beauty as well as historic beauty. If you’re visiting in the spring, plan to visit some of the peaceful gardens of Galena. It’s a great way to get acquainted with the town while seeing the sights. Or, head over to Galena on the Fly for an especially romantic hot air balloon ride!

Of course, history is a huge part of Galena. Visit one of the many historic sites to learn more about the long past of this town. Or, switch things up with a walking tour led by Galena’s very own General Grant! 

3. Take a Stroll Through the Historic District

Galena’s Main Street has something for everyone. Whether you’re in search of somewhere to grab a bite to eat, want to go shopping, or simply want to take in the beauty of the 19th-century architecture, it’s a wonderful place to spend a few hours. Make sure you visit the Helluva Half Mile while you’re here–this scenic strip in the heart of the Galena Historic District features more than 125 unique boutiques, delightful restaurants, and eclectic shops. 

4. Plan to Attend an Event

If you have some flexibility in planning your couples getaway, consider planning your trip around an event! From extravagant wine weekends to lively holiday parades, there’s always something exciting happening in Galena.
