One of the largest cities in Illinois, Rockford is a beautiful and historic city on the banks of the Rock River. Having grown as a manufacturing hub in the 19th and early 20th centuries, Rockford has seen recent growth in the aerospace and healthcare industries. The downtown area is full of gloriously restored buildings, creating a charming atmosphere where folks love to stroll the sidewalks and pop into the various storefront specialty shops, cafes, and watering holes.
Major stages like the BMO Harris Bank Center and the amphitheater at the Burpee Museum regularly host performances by regional and national acts, and the historic Coronado Theatre serves as not only one of the city’s favorite venues but a major community landmark as well. Enjoying a unique position in north central Illinois, Rockford is only about a ninety minute drive from Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison, making it easy for you to get out of town and enjoy a weekend trip in any of three major Midwest cities.
