We decided to check out WinterFest at Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena, Illinois for the long President’s Day weekend. It’s about a 3 hour car ride from Naperville and straight west.
Their winter fest was very cute. We enjoyed their giant ice bar and drank hot cocoa from their oversized roasted marshmallow “shot” glasses.
Shopping in downtown Galena was a highlight of our trip. Their rootbeer store offers “beer” flights and it was fun to taste test a bunch of different root beer flavors on tap with Olivia. Their toy stores and special spice and sauce stores are fun and we had lunch downtown before getting on the road to head home.
