Shopping on Main Street in Galena, IL

With more than 125 shops and restaurants, one door after another. There is just as much variety, quality, special activities, and sales but far less time spent walking and searching. From candy and ice cream shops to spas, wine tasting, and fantastic dining options, this experience is surreal because it all happens along an 1800s street with original buildings and no bland or routine 'brand' shops.

These shops are as diverse as the architecture and sights seen while enjoying this easy walking environment. Visitors to Main Street Galena get a fantastic experience but still have energy left at the end of the day to enjoy the unique restaurants and nightlife that can also be found among the shops.
