Are there any places to take the kids (ages 4, 6, and 10) swimming in or near Galena? We were thinking of staying at the Alpaca farm, but would like to include a day at the beach or pool. Any suggestions?

If you go 15 miles east and cross the River into Dubuque, there is a water park at the Grand Harbor at the Port of Dubuque, right on the Mississippi. There is also the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in the same area. Just take Highway 20 across the bridge. Do a mapquest to the Grand Harbor. I know how to get there but can't tell you the streets. There is also the 4th Street Elevator off Bluff St, called the Fenelon Elevator. Kids get a real kick out of it. You take a little cab up to the top of the bluff on train tracks.

Thanks for the info about the water park. I'm going to look that up. My husband and I went to the 4th Street Elevator several years ago. We'll probably take the kids there, too, because we had fun on it!
