Help! I need to get away!

Postby Qbert » Tue Jan 27, 2009 4:17 pm

This is hardly travel, but I want to find a weekend getaway spot for myself, my toddler and husband who hates hates hates crowds. I was looking at the Dells, specifically the Wilderness resort but it looks massive and crazy. But I liked the cozy rooms with fireplace (essential), kitchen (pretty much a must) and toddler swim area (fun). Anyone got ideas for me?? I'm going crazy!

Galena, IL has become a favorite of our family - myself, my wife, two-year old child and four-year old black lab.

Granted, we stay at my wife's parent's house in the Eagle Ridge Territory, but there's an inn there, that has an indoor pool, work-out area, spa and pretty nice restaurant:

Galena has some good restaurants and shopping if you're into that sort of thing. It can be crowded though.

My parents went to Galena for a weekend trip a couple weeks back. Of course it is somewhat nicer in the warmer months as you can walk around town and window-shop, but there are great restaurants and nice B&Bs.

You could try the Green Lake area. I've stayed at the HEIDEL HOUSE RESORT
and it's OK. I'm sure there are B&B's too.

Very quiet this time of the year.
