Rockford Tourism and Sightseeing
Illinois' Rockford Region is just a hop, skip and jump from Chicago's hustle and bustle - in the rolling, beautiful hills of Northern Illinois. When it comes to size, we're a Big City. When it comes to low-cost, no-hassle things to do, we're a Small Town. Best of all, you'll find Real, Original experiences you won't find anywhere else.
