Groceries: The drive to Galena coming from the east is a very pleasant drive. You travel in a US Rt 20 which is a two lane highway. You travel thru many small towns such as Lena, Elizabeth, Stockton. There is a grocery store in the town of Stockton by the name of 'Sullivans Foods', this is a great place to stop and stock up on reasonably priced groceries as you are arriving. In the territories there is a general store for necessities, there is also a wonderful deli and bakery and meat counter here. They do also rent more current videos here for a 24 hour time period. You can also stay on Rt 20 past the turn to get downtown galena and there is a Piggly Wiggly and a Walmart super store. Gas at the Walmart is usually cheaper.
