5 winter activities in Galena Country that don’t require snow

No snow? No problem!
Mother Nature doesn’t always act according to the plan but no worries, here are a few activities for your adventure to Galena Country.

Winter Hiking
Bundle up and take a hike! The driftless area offers unique hiking opportunities on nature preserves, providing picture-perfect views and Native American burial grounds. Barren trees give a clear view to all that nature has to offer. Gear up with boots, binoculars and your camera. It’s time reconnect with nature!

A touch of Magic
Book a magic show with Galena’s Master Magician, P.T. Murphy. With his sleight-of-hand and mischievous sense of humor, P.T. will mystify you with a jaw-dropping experience! Located in the heart of downtown Galena, this intimate magic show is a perfect combination with a local restaurant.

Tastings and Toastings
Regardless of the weather, wine and spirits are always a great idea! Massbach Ridge Winery and Galena Cellars both have tasting rooms located on the Helluva Half Mile, open year-round. For a more ‘scenic route’, take a drive out to Rocky Waters Vineyard where you can appreciate amazing views and great wine!

Let’s not forget about the Blaum Bros. Distilling Co., located minutes from Downtown Galena. Take a tour of the distillery, enjoy a cocktail and re-stock your liquor cabinet, all in one location! Craft beer lovers, you’ll be happy to know that Galena Country is home to two craft breweries, Galena Brewing Co. and Pecatonica Beer Co. Tap House. Cheers!

Dinner and a Show
One of Galena’s newest additions is Amelia’s Under the Lamplight Dinner Theater. Experience fine dining and exceptional entertainment in a unique Supper Club atmosphere. New performances and a seasonal menu offer something new for each visit!
