The city of Galena, Illinois – always considered a “town that time forgot” – has stepped back into the limelight as a city that no one can forget about. Condé Nast Traveler recently published the results of their annual Readers’ Choice Survey and declared Galena as not only one of the friendliest cities in the United States, but in the world.
Galena, coming in second on the domestic list and fourteenth on the global list with a score of 87.9 out of 100, was praised as being a relaxing destination with plenty to do and a place that can be spiritually and emotionally uplifting. The historic, idyllic city was one of only four from the United States to make the top 20 internationally.
