“Jeep Rentals” Another Elizabeth Attraction

“Jeep Rentals” Another Elizabeth Attraction

Think about it! Cruising the back roads of Jo Davies County in a brand new Jeep. Soft top and side curtains down. Feel the wind in your hair as you explore the rolling hills and amazing countryside, historic towns and perhaps tip a glass at a local winery.

Your  Adventure begins at 11 a.m. when you pick up your Jeep at Galena Jeep Rentals on the east side of Elizabeth at the corner of U.S. Highway 20 and Scales Mound Road. And you can “Adventure” until 9 a.m. the following day.

Owner Katie Ries will greet you and provide maps and “Adventure” suggestions for you suited to your taste focusing on fantastic scenery, good food, good music and good fun.

“You can do three states in half a day if you wish,” Katie says, “or you might want to concentrate on music such as an event at Council Hills or the Flatted Fifth.”

“Start in Elizabeth and see the scenery on the gorgeous road to Direnda, and then on to Savanah and Palisades State Park,  cross the Mississippi to Bellevue(Ia.) on to Dubuque, then back across the river to Hazel Green(Wis.), down to Galena and on to Council Hills  and, finally,  back to Elizabeth.

“We’ll find your interests and design a trip for you, maps included.”

Great Idea isn’t it!

Katie and husband Josh came up with it after the rented a Jeep on a vacation to the Smokeys and had a wonderful time driving through the mountains.

“It was amazing. So much fun,’ she said. “So we got to thinking on the way home that people know Galena but they don’t know the rest of Jo Daviess County.

“This is something different. Men might get bored and want something else to do. And you can create groups to enjoy the experience: Friends, Couples, Kids, Girls, Guys, Family, and create a special Adventure designed to their interests.

“And if you are looking for something really special and unique,

Get your Jeep in the fall and ask for the secret ‘Leaf Drive”.”

Katie and Josh are Jo Daviess County natives and know the best places to go in the three state area for beauty, history, music, antiquing, food and just plain fun.

Matter of fact, it’s in the blood. Often they will phone each other and say “Let’s Go for an Adventure next week…or maybe let’s just go tonight!”
