What struck me about Galena was the almost breathtaking beauty in the surrounding countryside. Galena is charming, and I love the antique shops, but the scenery is beautiful!

I Agree!!!! This is coming from a "flat lander" from north central Illinois. Tallest thing where I grew up was the corn and the silos.

Galena and Southern Illinois are totally different than central IL

Ive always felt Frederick was a bit of a hidden gem! most of the attention in the DC area for that kind of town goes to Alexandria and Ellicott city, but Frederick definently holds its own, and plus the mountains are very nice

In Wisconsin, another beautiful area to visit is the Spring Green area. This is where Frank Lloyd Wright lived for a number of years at his Wisconsin home, Taliesen. There is a visitor's center that offers tours of his home. http://www.taliesenpreservation.org/aboutus/index.htm (broken link)

I TOTALLY whole heartedly agree. Frederick is definitely a great place to visit.

I agree with this too. I will admit that I do love Old Town in Alexandria though. Great area.
