Where we ate:
Procento’s Pizzeria – Home of the “Double Decker Pizza.” Honestly one of the best pizza places I have ever been to! Great food. Smaller place, but well worth it for the pizza.
Vinny Vanucchi’s “Little Italy” – Old World Italian Neighborhood Restaurant. Great food, amazing atmosphere.
Green Street Tavern – Cute pub. Serves great sandwiches/soups and has the best Bloody Mary’s.
Dirty Gurts Burger Joint – Unique burger place. Fun sayings on the wall & fun atmosphere. Great for kids!
Beers, Wine & Spirits:
Galena Brewing Company – Loved this place. Bartender was awesome – very friendly and helpful. HAVE TO HAVE: 2 lb Baked Pretzel. You will not be disappointed. Comes with Beer Cheese as a dipping sauce. Oh yea, and great beer selection!
The Cornerstone – The live music is spot on. Laid back atmosphere. In the heart of Galena’s downtown.
Galena Cellars Vineyard & Winery – Wine tasting. 12 different wine samples of your choice for $5. Their Rhubarb wine is my personal favorite.
Where we shopped:
All That’s Vintage (Photo seen below) – Vintage everything: Dishware, toys, clothes, and home décor. My favorite store in Galena.
Peace of the Past -For you Antique lovers this is the place to go. Vintage books galore. Fun place to go in and take a peek
Poopsie’s – Kids will love this place. Small crazy shop full of unique art, gifts, jewelry, and crazy games!
Vintaj Earth – Handmade jewelry. Kinda pricey, but love the look of the place and great looking jewelry.
Galena’s Kandy Kitchen – Candy you can buy by the pound. They offer a ton of old school candy (Photos seen below)
We went walking along the “Pathway of the Levee.” The half-mile long pathway offers wonderful views of the Galena River, Galena’s historic downtown, magnificent bluff homes and church steeples. Great views (Photo seen below)
