The Perfect Thursday Night in Galena

One of my favorite hidden gems is Galena – technically a village in Delaware. Galena’s historic New England style downtown still features structures built in the 1820s and is sprinkled with a restaraunt/pub, coffee shop and a 1500 ft boardwalk.

I absolutely LOVE live, […]
