Rockford, embrace your quirk

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.

I mean how many other small cities can compete with this collection? And I’ve barely scratched the surface! You don’t believe me? Oh, okay here’s 10 more:

Oh, you’re still not satisfied? Fine:

You may still not believe me, but this list isn’t finished. And I haven’t even mentioned any of the phenomenal attractions our suburbs provide. But I think you get my point.

When we allow our critics to showcase Rockford, we forget what really makes this city special.

Play tourist in your city. You may find out some really neat stuff.
