Fodor’s Travel – 10 Best Antiquing Towns in the U.S. • GALENA, ILLINOIS

Northwestern Illinois’ village Galena has made a name for itself in the antique scene for its prime shops. With about 3,429 people, Galena’s a favorite spot for Chicagoans looking for a weekend away. Take to the shops on Main Street starting with All That’s Vintage for an array of rare toys, cameras, and knick-knacks. Head south on Main Street to Rustic River Finds, where new and repurposed jewelry is crafted on site using unique stones and gems. Further down the road, you’ll discover fine jewelry at Gustafson & Grey, well-stocked racks of vintage fashion at Tin-Pan Alley Antique Mall (on Commerce Street), and the many books and collectibles at Peace of the Past.

Insider Tip: Make a pit stop along the way to Galena at the Massbach Ridge Winery, where you can enjoy estate-grown wine while taking in the scenic hills of Jo Daviess County.
