Is March 30, 2013 good time to visit?
Difficult to say: we're having an exceptionally long winter here in the Midwest: running colder than normal and with lots of frequent snowstorms.
Forecasts only go out 10 days and those are questionable: anything could change. At the moment it looks like low 40's for March 27. But other than skiing/snowboarding (I'm unsure of snow conditions there at present) I'd say Galena is more of a spring/summer/fall destination.
Yeah, you are right. But there are possibilities, better to go on coming weekend (22-24 March) there's Wine Lover's Weekend! You know, when drinking wine you forget the weather.
Khushi, why Galena?
I would agree with what Kate (goodfish) has said about when to visit. Downtown Galena has stores that will be open, but if you want to visit the surrounding areas right now there is not much to see as we are still in the throes of winter and nothing flower like is blooming yet!
