Attractions & Activities in Galena, Illinois

Hip and historic, Aldrich Guest House is within walking distance of award-winning restaurants, cool art galleries and cultural happenings, and craft beers and wine tasting rooms loved by locals. No wonder the National Trust of Historic Preservation recognized the city of Galena as one of “America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations.”

P.T. Murphy Magic Show


It is rare that you get to see an up-close magic show! It is a completely different experience from the grand fanfare shows of Las Vegas.

Fritz and Frites


Half German, half French with a great beer and wine list and excellent service to match – our personal favorite!

At the corner of Main and Franklin in what was a candy store in the mid-1800s is something that not too many small towns can claim – a Japanese/Sushi restaurant!
