Girls’ Getaway Near Chicago

Close to your Home Sweet Vacation Home 

You may want to stick close to your Farmer’s Guest House refuge and Galena for shorter stays. However, it is not the largest town in Illinois, and it offers plenty to keep you occupied when relaxing in your sanctuary. For example, Galena Cellars Vineyard & Winery offers two locations in the area: their winery is in the heart of downtown at 111 N Main Street, and the vineyard is on the outskirts of town, 4746 N. Ford Road. Both offer wine tastings and musical events, with the vineyard providing spectacular views and heated igloos that ensure your winter visits will be toasty, and the winery in town offering a historic location within walking distance of your home sweet vacation home. 

Pamper Yourself 

A visit to Indulge Day Spa, 11383 US Highway 20, can be another fun gal’s activity for your girl’s getaway in Galena, helping strengthen the bonds of friendship as you are pampered and spoiled, but remember, Farmer’s Guest House also offers spa services, including massage packages that can be customized to your needs and can be perfect for those days when you choose to stay in and explore the amenities found with us. Indulge is also a good option, offering mani/pedi, hairstyling, and body waxing in addition to their talented massage services. 

Take this Party on the Road 

Galena offers many wonderful activities for the girls to participate in, but as it is just a few hour’s drive from the big city of Chicago, you may decide to make a road trip on one of your days. Even if you just take your girl’s getaway to the towns near Chicago, you will discover a host of fun activities that bring the magic of the big city to your suburban explorations. Rockford, Illinois, lies halfway between Galena and Chicago and is known for its Anderson Japanese Gardens and wonderful restaurants. One of them is Abreo, a small tapas spot that adds sophistication to your journey of friends.
