About The Event

Event Details

We will depart the Chicagoland area on Saturday, May 11 at approximately 7 am. After arriving @ Maquoketa Caves State Park, we will explore the numerous caves in the area. The park sits on 111 acres of land and contains more caves than any other state park in Iowa! Trail systems link the caves and rock formations/overlooks while providing a scenic hiking experience.

After exploring the parks we will have dinner and stay at a local hotel overnight—your choice of Single and Double occupancy lodging accommodations.

Sunday morning, after breakfast, we will head to Galena, IL. Galena is known for its history, small shops, historic buildings (including the Dowling House and Grants Home), and great food options! We will spend approximately 5 hours here before heading back to the Chicagoland area, but not before you get your fill of shopping, having lunch, and doing some good old people-watching!

This trip has a little bit of everything built into celebrating Mother’s Day with like-minded people who enjoy seeing new sights, being social, good food, and even better company!

Transportation is included from Huntley, IL, as are snacks and beverages/water. Bring a book,  crochet, or sit back, relax, and socialize in our 15-passenger van while our guides do all the driving. Lodging is also included on Saturday. Meals and other snacks are your responsibility.
