Rockford has many water ways to enjoy including the Rogue River which flows through downtown Rockford and next to the White Pine Trail. There are frequent concerts in the band shell that is right next to the focal point of Rockford, the dam. There are also several all-sport lakes in the area, such as Silver Lake, Myers Lake, and Bostwick Lake. If you’re looking for lakefront living but want a lake that isn’t quite as large as Lake Michigan, Rockford is a great place to consider. Downtown Rockford always has something going on and features many great restaurants and boutique shops.
