• WorldMark By Wyndham
This resort is set in Galena, a former mining boomtown seemingly untouched by age since its heyday in the mid-19th century. Homes and buildings have been meticulously preserved, and much of Galena is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Specialty shops, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants line the streets. Nearby are ample outdoor activities at Apple River Canyon State Park, as well as four challenging world-class golf courses, equestrian trails, and downhill ski runs.
