Galena's Main Street

Main Street, Galena, IL 61036

Historic Main Streets

Galena's Main Street boasts half a mile of more than 125 independently owned shops and restaurants, one door after another.

From candy and ice cream shops to spas, wine tasting and amazing dining options, this experience is downright surreal because it all happens along a 1800s street with original buildings and no bland or routine ‘brand’ shops. These shops are as diverse as the architecture and sights that can be seen while enjoying this easy walking environment. Visitors to the Helluva Half Mile in Galena, get the amazing experience but still have energy left at the end of the day to enjoy the unique restaurants and nightlife that is found mingled amongst the shops.
