Your Guide to Rockford, IL

The next time you visit the Land of Lincoln, go off the beaten path with a cheap Rockford, IL car rental. From picnicking at the Rock River to working on your par number at one of the city’s golf courses, your Illinois adventure will be one for the record books.

Cruising Rockford

If you’re traveling with your kids (or even without them), the Discovery Center Museum is one of the first places you should visit. Roam through over 200 exhibits devoted to science, biology, and even outer space.
Just 2 miles east is one of Rockford’s most prominent public spaces: Sinnissippi Park. Here, you can take in the beauty of the outdoors in any season. Enjoy a summer picnic on the shore of the Rock River, embark on a snowy hike during the winter, or attend one of the many festivals held in the park throughout the year.
Rockford has numerous golf courses scattered inside and just outside its city limits. Play 18 holes among wide, inviting trees, or tee off over the rolling hills of the Sinnissippi Gold Course. Golf season changes depending on how long winter lasts, so if you’re hoping to play during spring or summer, remember to call ahead and make sure they’re open.

The History of Rockford

Rockford was originally called Midway, as it was located in between the communities of Kentville and Haightville. Renamed Rockford thanks to the nearby ford on the Rock River, the city was officially incorporated in 1852. The area attracted settlers throughout the second half of the 19th century with its agriculture and furniture manufacturing, and the city eventually became the second-leading furniture producer in the nation. Rockford was also home to the Zouave regiment, one of the first groups of soldiers from Illinois to be mobilized during the Civil War.

The Weather

You’ll experience four separate seasons depending on when you visit Rockford. Summer sees average highs in the 80s, along with an average of 3 to 4 inches of rain through June, July, and August. Spring and early summer can also bring frequent showers and thunderstorms. September and October see average highs in the 60s and 70s, before the temperature drops sharply into the 40s in November. Winter tends to be cold and snowy, with average highs in the 20s and 30s, as well as 36 inches of annual snowfall. Winter storms and blizzards can be harsh, and frequently shut down the city when they occur.
