Nestled amid Galena’s forested hillsides, Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa is an ideal jumping-off point for exploring the area’s many wineries. Lake Galena is a few steps from the resort, so you can while away the afternoon fishing for walleye and largemouth bass or exploring the 20 miles of hiking and biking trails that surround the lake. Bring your own bicycle or borrow one for free from the resort.
Kick back: Standard courtyard rooms feature a walkout patio or balcony.
Bamboo massages and reiki therapy are among the indulgent treatments available at the onsite Stonedrift Spa.
Recognition: The resort was awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2013.
Galena, Illinois: Quaint Mississippi River Town with Historical Main Street
Galena is a relic from the mid-19th century, when it first boomed as a mining town and port city on the Mississippi River. Today, its quaint downtown historic district—which Fodor’s says “epitomizes small-town America”—is lined with coffee shops, wineries, art galleries, and restaurants in 19th-century brick storefronts. Its Main Street even earned a spot on a Travel + Leisure list of America’s Greatest Main Streets. History buffs should make a stop at Ulysses S. Grant’s Home, where the 18th president and Civil War general lived after the war.
