The other day I came across a travel blog of this guy who recently visited Rockford, and he just raved about his time here. He wrote this fantastic line I can't get out of my head: “Rockford was just a one-night stopover during my Illinois road trip, but it was one of the top highlights on my one-week trip. Mostly because all of the city’s attractions were so random and quirky and surprisingly cool.”
Random. Quirky. Surprisingly Cool. Rockford. I can already picture it on an Art Deli T-shirt. And you know what? He’s right. If you think of what Rockford has to offer for a small city, it’s kinda funny how long and wide-ranging the list is.
