I am taking my mom to Galena for the weekend in October, for her birthday. I am leaning towards staying at the Hampton Inn in Dubuque, rather than in Galena. The rates for Galena hotels are all very high for that weekend, plus I get Hilton points for staying at the Hampton Inn.
How feasible is it to expect to be going back and forth throughout the weekend - is it an easy drive? Looks like about 20 minutes, right?
We will probably go to Galena and shop during the day on Saturday, then do dinner at Fried Green Tomatoes Saturday night, so probably won't have time to drive back and forth to freshen up.
Should I just bite the bullet and stay in Galena?
