Fall in Love with Galena
As summer nights drift to the cool fall breeze there is nothing more beautiful than the scenic hills of the Galena countryside. The elaborate colors that paint their way over the trees is one of most amazing sights I have ever seen. I fell in love with the sights and the smells of Galena in Autumn. It almost begs for the warm arms of a loved one. The soft embrace of a well-worn sweater and the warm crackling of a fire at night to cozy up to. There is no more perfect time to visit Galena then during the changing of the leaves.
The weather is perfect for a trip downtown through the shops while enjoying a hot coffee at Kaladi’s Coffee bar, Devour Café, or Mean Bean Roaster’s. For the golfer, it is the perfect time to hit the tee as the last fleeting days of the season sprinkle away. The town is filled with activities to keep the fall spirit alive. If you feel adventurous and brave enough there are some haunting ghost tours to get the heart pumping. And what could be better after a day of shopping and spooking then to cozy on up to a fire-pit among friends with some libations and laughter to last the night long. Galena has endless opportunities for relaxation, romance, fun and adventure.

It seems like only yesterday that summer was approaching. I can hardly believe that July is over in a few short days and August will be upon us. Never fear Galena has so many wonderful things to do every month of the year. Here are some fun and exciting things to see and do on your getaway this August.
Jo Daviess County Fair is this August 2-4th. What a wonderful opportunity to go to the carnival, play games, listen to music, and eat some yummifications. Bring the kids, have a girls or guys retreat, or stroll the park hand in hand with that special someone (maybe you can win them a prize). To view all the activities go to: http://www.jodaviesscountyfair.org/
