You Name It: Rockford has it all!
A city doesn't have to be huge to have lots of sports. Admission and parking don't cost as much and the hot dogs taste just as good! Cheer on the Rockford IceHogs professional hockey team or the Rockford Aviators professional baseball team if you want to show some team spirit! For those active in sports, Rockford has everything ranging from over a dozen quality golf courses to the rough terrain of a BMX training track and Rocky Glen's off-highway vehicle park. The beautiful Rock River is an excellent outlet for sports. Watch the world-class Ski Broncs team build a human pyramid on water skis right before your eyes, or sit back and relax as you crusie the river on the Forest City Queen Riverboat!
