Rockford, Illinois

Rockford is the third largest city in the U.S. state of Illinois, the 171st most populous city in the United States, and the148th most populous region in the United States. Rockford is the county seat of Winnebago County and is located on both banks of the Rock River in far northern Illinois. According to 2010 census data, the City of Rockford had a population of 152,871, with an outlying metropolitan area population of 348,360, which was estimated to have decreased to 150,251 and 344,623, respectively, by July 2013. Settled between 1834 and 1835, Rockford was strategically positioned between Chicago and Galena and thus became suitable for industrial development. Rockford was notable for its output of heavy machinery and tools; by the twentieth century, it was the second leading center of furniture manufacturing in the nation, and 94th largest city. Its decline, emblematic of other cities in the Rust Belt, led to economic diversification into automotive, aerospace, and healthcare industries, as well as the undertaking of various tourism and downtown revitalization efforts. Referred to as the Forest City, Rockford is known for various venues of cultural or historical significance, including Anderson Japanese Gardens, Klehm Arboretum, Tinker Swiss Cottage, the BMO Harris Bank Center, the Coronado Theatre, the Laurent House, and the Burpee Museum of Natural History.

Rockford life center around the Rock River. It may divide the east side from the west, but it brings people together for events such as the Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition; Fourth of July Festival; Ski Broncs Water Ski Shows; Rockford Art Museum Greenwich Village Art Fair and Rockford Art Guild’s Artists’ Fair; Music in the Park and Holiday Festival of Lights, plus the Forest City Queen excursion boat.
Several museums cluster in Riverfront Museum Park on the west bank; Sinnissippi Gardens and Park stretch along the east bank; Mercy Rockford Sportscore 1 has river access on the north; a trail network links them all. Rockford continues to develop its waterfront by converting industrial sites into parks and public areas, such as Davis Park at Founder’s Landing.

With 10,000+ acres of parks and forest preserves, there’s plenty of outdoor fun in and around Rockford. You can bike, hike, roller-blade, swim, boat, sail, picnic, camp, fish, bird-watch, ride horses, play miniature golf. The Rockford Area has 25 miles of interconnecting trails and a dozen golf courses. Enjoy the 35-acre Magic Waters Waterpark and the two huge Mercy Rockford Sportscore 1 and 2. Watch the world-class water ski team Ski Broncs ply the Rock River in free weekly shows during the summer. Ride a river excursion boat. Attend car and motorcycle races at Rockford Speedway and Blackhawk Farms Raceway.

Rockford’s park district is particularly active. Rockford operates Aldeen Golf Course, which was rated the best municipal golf course in Illinois by Golf Digest and one of the top fifty golf courses in the nation that cost under $50 to play by Golf Magazine. In addition to Tinker Swiss Cottage, the park district maintains four other museums. The Burpee Museum of Natural History is home to the world’s most complete juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex, Jane, as well as a triceratops, Homer. The Discovery Center Museum, a children’s museum featuring over 250 hands-on exhibits including a planetarium, is on the 12 Best Children’s Museums in The U.S. list by Forbes.
