Galesburg Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 20 photos

Lost among all the corn is Galesburg, Illinois. While it may not be on everyone's 'must see' list, Galesburg does offer a little bit of history and a little bit of hidden fun for the vacationer. While Galesburg may not make a great long-term tourist destination (the Knox County's division of tourism might disagree with me), it can make for a pleasureful one-night stay. So if you're traveling in the area, you might think about checking it out.

    Overpriced and over rated! Grisly steak and poor service.
