Galena, Illinois: Quaint Mississippi River Town with Historic Main Street
Galena’s story starts in the mid-19th century, when it first boomed as a mining town and port city on the Mississippi River. Today, the quaint historic district—which Fodor’s says “epitomizes small-town America”—is filled with coffee shops, specialty boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants in 19th-century brick storefronts.
When you’re not shopping, have a drink—Galena is home to a bustling brewing and winemaking scene, with shops and pubs showcasing locally made tipples. History buffs will want to make a stop at Ulysses S. Grant’s home, where the 18th president and Civil War general lived after the war. Head across the river to enter Iowa and check out the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque.
