Our morning drive brings us into beautiful Galena, Illinois with our first stop at the Grant Home for a guided tour. This Italianate-style brick house, with original furnishings, looks very much as it did in 1865 when a group of townspeople presented it as a gift to Ulysses S. Grant on his victorious return from the Civil War. (Tour included).

After our tour, we stop at the Visitor Center, followed by some free time. Enjoy lunch (on your own) and some shopping at the many quaint shops that line the main street.

Departure finds us heading home, but not before we stop at the Swiss Colony Outlet Store. This privately-owned company has been around since 1926, and is best known for its famous cheese, sausage and bakery items from the Swiss Colony Catalog.

Package Price: $73
