Fun for Everyone

There is something fun to do every day! From shopping at the Rockford City Market in the summer to visiting museum exhibits throughout the year, you will never find yourself bored. Some of the best activities involve the outdoors, from the active (kayaking) to the more relaxed (dining, music, movies and more).

The Rockford Park District has activities for anyone of any age. Get outside and enjoy the beauty surrounding us in every season. From golf on one of the championship public courses with country club amenities to ziplining canopy tours.

The Rockford Area Visitors and Convention Bureau encourages you to explore our museums, visit some unique shops, grab a bite to eat at one of our many restaurants, take in some arts and culture, or relax at one of our hotels. You’ll be In good company in Real. Original. Rockford!

City Market is open on Fridays from 3:30 – 8:30 pm, May through September annually. Located right on the river on Water and Market streets the market features local growers, crafters and artists. Visitors can experience live music, craft beer, and kids activities.
