The drive between Mississippi Palisades State Park and Galena is gorgeous in the fall. It is about 1/2 hour. The views from the overlooks at the park are just beautiful. Galena is more active on the weekends, and they often have activities. Their Oktoberfest is pretty fun and their Halloween Parade is quite unique. Halloween is quite the party and a lot of locals dress up.
