One of the key features of Rockford is it’s natural beauty, lakes and river. The Rogue River flows right through it’s quaint downtown and the White Pine Trail goes along side it. There are frequent concerts in the band shell that is right by the dam. There are also several all-sport lakes nearby such as Silver Lake, Meyers Lake and Bostwick Lake. If you’re looking for lake front living but want a lake that isn’t as large as Lake Michigan, Rockford is a great place to consider. Downtown Rockford features many great restaurants and boutique shops as well as many main street type businesses.
Rockford has an excellent school district. With over 1,900 students in the high school it is one of the largest in the area. They have some incredible athletic programs and bring the community together to cheer on the Rockford Rams! Rockford is a large school district geographically as well with 8 different elementary schools in different areas which ultimately feeds into one high school. There are many different opportunities for students here.
