ROCKFORD: A City Glorified by Water, Trees and a Love of Nature
September 4, 2013
There is something special about Rockford. Perhaps it is in the water. The city, Illinois second largest, has many attractions, but it is those imbued with water that seems to make the city especially attractive. There is the city's four rivers, led by the relatively-wide Rock River, which flows gently through the middle of the metro, providing a mecca for fishermen and recreational boater and a great dock replete with great restaurants and the home of Illinois' largest music festival On the Waterfront.
