Life in Rockford
Discover what our lifelong area residents already know: Rockford has a lot to offer. As the third-largest city in Illinois, nestled along the banks of the Rock River, Rockford offers first-rate recreational, cultural and natural attractions.
Golf Digest named Rockford the “best mid-sized golf city in the United States.” And no wonder. With more than a dozen courses to choose from, along with covered and indoor driving ranges, you should always be able to find a tee time that will work for you. If aiming for pins is more your speed, there are several bowling alleys nearby.
Spectator sports abound. Rockford is home to professional hockey and baseball teams. You may also be able to catch auto races, roller derby games, water skiing and even the occasional rodeo! And who doesn’t love the Thunderbirds scream through the sky at Rockford AirFest?
Culture and History
The Rockford area is home to many art galleries, museums and musical venues.
As the area’s oldest outdoor summer theatre, the Starlight Theatre has been named one of Illinois’ 150 Great Places. The BMO Harris Bank Center attracts entertainment acts of all sorts, from top-name musical acts to rodeos and circuses.
Rockford is rich in museums and history attractions, too. From the Burpee Museum of Natural History to the small but fascinating Camp Grant Museum, to the Frank Lloyd Wright Laurent House and Rockford Art Museum, there’s always something new to see or do!
The Rockford area is awash in natural beauty, too. The Anderson Japanese Garden, Klehm Arboretum, and Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens are all renowned for their plant collections and are alluring in any season.
Or enjoy the sights along the Rock River in summer aboard the Forest City Queen.
Wesley Willows is also well-located for off-campus health care. Swedish American Hospital, St. Anthony Medical Center, and Rockford Memorial Hospital are among those medical facilities that serve the Rockford area.
