Romantic Getaways in Illinois: Galena
This little jewel of a town in the northwest part of the state is one of the most popular romantic getaways in Illinois. Galena is packed with some interesting things to do - thereâ€™s the award-winning Galena Winery, the Galena Art Center, historical sites like the Ulysses S. Grant Home State Historic Site or 1859 Post Office, and many beautiful 19th century historic homes and specialty shops to explore. Or, just a relaxing stroll down one of the streets or a hop onto Galena Trolley tours is a wonderful way to spend some time. * Romantic Galena B&B's - there are some very classic and quaint lodging choices for a bed and breakfast in Galena. A couple of nights in a rustic, turn-of-the-century historic inn here will add some romance to your Illinois weekend getaway. Distance from Chicago to Galena: 175 miles, Driving Time: 3 hours.

But the considerations that most people have mentioned - weather, slightly less choice in weekend getaways if that's important to you. But it really may be more your type of place. I'm a native of Chicago and miss it for the humor, compassion, friendliness and ease for getting around. You will love it and a happier you will make friends fast, guaranteed.
You must try to visit a couple time...ulous "walking" city and the north side is full of great neighborhoods. Check out the site for the Chicago Reader.
Everyone has there opinions but my suggestion, having lived in Chicago, Denver, Toronto, and L.A. and eastern Penn., you are young and single, I assume - so do it. And learn about the rest of the country. If nothing else it is a great place to visit and you'll have a fun trip.
A few more points2003-06-18 07:29:14 by derridahulk
The Portlanders have good points. Cost of living in SF can suffer anyone who moves there. Traffic in the whole Bay Area is just as bad as Austin's during rush hour. Portland's public transportation is decent.
I disagree with the weather statement - ALong the coast, SF is generally foggy everyday, however the rest of SF is not . Not to mention, you can find sun wihtin a 1/2 hour drive from ...Height Street (not eveybody's cup of tea), the abundance of independant book stores (kinda like Austin's Half-Priced Books), Berkley (aka Bezerkley)
Cultures (other): North BEach (Italian), Chinatown, Japantown, Daly City (Filipino), Sunset/Geary St.(Irish pubs), MIssion District (Mexican/Latin), SOMA (rich yuppies trying to hold on to their youth) - all within one city (except Daly City).
