✔ - I love this place! Neat little shopping district!! Plus this is my go-to for wine! :-) - Main Street Galena, Illinois

Galena IL - this quaint town that caters to women, sits over the Mississippi River, just east of Dubuque, Iowa. There is a nice cigar shop that my husband enjoyed...happy shopping ladies!! Drag him with or leave him at home!
