Galena was once the major steamboat stop between Minneapolis and St. Louis, and still has the architecture to show for it. It’s swarming with Bed&Breakfasts, and it’s a neat city to explore. Grant’s home is in town, and tours are available, but we’ve never done that.

The main street is chock-full of neat little shops (stuffed animals, candy, beads, antiques, chocolate, craft supplies, ice cream, galleries, music… you name it, there’s a quirky little store devoted to it). Spaced along the street are several excellent restaurants — we’ve pretty much gravitated to the Italian ones, but there are others.
