Galena Timeshares For Sale
When you visit Galena, Illinois you will often feel as if you are stepping back into the past. Whether it is the abundance of natural areas along the mighty Mississippi River or following the footsteps of president Ulysses S. Grant in his historic home, this charming town has the power to transport you into another world whenever you visit one of the Galena timeshares for sale here on BuyaTimeshare.com.
Not surprisingly, the most popular time to visit is during the summer months. Temperatures are moderate from May through September with highs in the mid-80s Fahrenheit and tourists come from all over the country with their families to enjoy the historic tours, go for boat rides down the Mississippi River, and spend quality time out in nature. If you want to avoid some of the crowds, you may want to visit in late spring or early fall when the tourism traffic slows down in this area. The least crowded months are in the winter, although you can still spend days outdoors hitting the slopes at the Chestnut Mountain Resort ski area and other nearby winter sports facilities.
Wonderful Outdoor Activities
The best part of these Galena timeshares is that it can be as much fun for families as it is for adults. The Mississippi River offers opportunities for boating and fishing on sunny afternoons. You can also hike through the Casper Bluff Land & Water Reserve above the river to view Native American historic sites, as well as an abundance of birds and other wildlife, so don't forget your binoculars. Other popular activities include anything from horseback rides to Segway tours or fly high above it all with a Hot Air Balloon ride with the entire family.
For the history buffs in the family, a Galena timeshare vacation is going to be a highlight if only for the fact that almost three-quarters of the homes and buildings downtown are on the National Historic Registry. Perhaps the most famous is the former home of Civil War General and US President Ulysses S. Grant, which can be toured in groups led by interpreters wearing period costumes. The Galena Historical Society hosts events such as cemetery walks and other tours if you want to learn more about any of the historical sites around town.
Nightlife in Galena tends to be fairly laid-back. One option is the P.T. Murphy Magic Theater, an hour-long show of humor and magic. You will also find live music and after-hours fun at several bars, restaurants, and pubs downtown.
