It doesn’t take long to figure out why Galena is the second most visited city in Illinois. Chicago takes the No. 1 spot but Galena is a lost-in-time hamlet that lures visitors with its more than 100 mom ‘n’ pop shops on Main Street, hillside homes and buildings, 75 percent of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the romance of vineyards, an unending roster of unique events and 30 bed & breakfasts and cottages.
It is an enchanting place that makes lifetime memories. It’s a social media playground and photographers’ dream. It is, quite simply, a bucket list destination.
