Nestled along rolling hills surrounding the banks of the Galena River, the town of Galena is inspired by its natural surroundings. In fall, Galena especially shines, with trees speckled beside mid-century farm houses and enticing brick-lined shopping streets.
If you’re craving an outdoor adventure, take a panoramic cruise along the Mississippi Explorer for views of the ever-changing trees. If you would rather enjoy some hiking, head out to the 85-acre Casper Bluff to reveal 1,000-year-old Native American burial grounds. And if you want to pick up some souvenirs, check out the locally owned boutiques lining historic Main Street, which offer goods ranging from infused olive oils to jewelry.
