International Travel to Galena!

Adventure King

Scroll through the two posts below for a look at the international¬†adventure travel to Galena feature in the Japanese magazine…Adventure King! The bottom post is from another Japanese magazine called Shukan New York Seikatsu.¬†The State of Illinois, Great Rivers Country Regional Office and the Galena/Jo Daviess County CVB were happy¬†to host these international travelers this summer, one of whom was Ms. Makiko Yamamoto¬†of Adventure King. They had an action-packed itinerary where they enjoyed tours of the Goldmoor Inn, Blaum Bros. Distilling Co., ¬†Chestnut Mountain Resort, Ulysses S. Grant Home State Historic Site, Tri-State Trolley Tour, Amelia’s Ghost Tours and the Elihu B. Washburne House.

The writers got a taste of Galena with¬†meals at Otto’s Place, Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa, Vinny Vanucchi’s¬†”Little Italy” and One Eleven Main. They arrived at the¬† perfect time back in June, allowing them to take in¬†the Great Galena Balloon Race AND ride in a hot air balloon with Galena On The Fly! The travelers were able to rest during this whirlwind tour at the DeSoto House Hotel and the Ramada Hotel & Spa.
