I have never been to Galena but have family members and friends that have. I hear it is absolutely beautiful. I am hoping to make it there sometime in this lifetime! Thanks for the tip, Claire!

Hubby and I picked Galena out of many places after three years on the road full-time. Unfortunately the local restaurants are inconsistent. We love the Chicago restaurants, but that is a 7-hour round trip to the most close 'burb. When we do go there we look for ethnic restaurants. Since there is no Asian food in Galena, we would probably choose that. One time there was a great Spanish restaurant for tapas, another time a sushi bar. The last time I went with a blind girlfriend to help her out at the hotel, etc, and we hit the Billy Goat Tavern; what fun and what great history.

Hey, Banana, I'm late chiming in here, but I prefer tuna (top grade ahi) to salmon -- when I moved to Hawaii (when I was in my mid twenties) I didn't like fish/seafood in any form, and ahi sashimi turned me around. Ironic that I learned to like raw fish before liking cooked!

I spent a week with an old boyfriend in Chicago many many years ago. We walked out of the O'Hare Airport to get our rental car and it was snowing.

We went in February and stayed at the Drake Hotel near the lake. We went to the top of the Sears Tower and all I saw was flat land. We dined at many fine restaurants and the good was delicious.
