Visit the Town That Time Forgot to experience a unique tourist destination with a rich history and scenic surroundings. A mining boomtown that has been virtually untouched since the mid-1800s, Galena is a meticulously preserved period town that is home to over 1,000 historic buildings. Much of Galena today is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The former residence of U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant, this historic destination also offers a wide selection of outdoor activities nearby, including challenging golf courses, zip lines, exciting ski resorts, family fun at Lake Galena and horseback riding through rolling hills and flower-filled valleys. Tourism is now the city's main attraction, with specialty shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants appealing to more than a million visitors annually. You will appreciate the economy of a 420 square foot studio that sleeps 2 and has a kitchenette, or relax in a 850 square foot one-bedroom vacation suite that comfortably sleeps 4 between a private bedroom with a king bed and a queen Murphy bed in the living area with a full kitchen and in-room laundry. Whether you're traveling with extended family or a smaller party every room has a dining/living area, TV with DVD player, whirlpool tub, private balcony, and fireplace - comforts you just won't find in an average hotel room. Enjoy the resort amenities including an indoor pool with hot tub, game room, laundry facilities, fire pit, and barbecue/picnic area.
