In the Heart of Summer

Thursday, July 8, 2021 12:00 PM by Jack Zuba

As we flip our calendars into July, and the long holiday weekend passes, it begins to feel like summer is in full swing. Personally, I always feel like the 4th of July is that midpoint of the season, and it’s time to start checking things off the summer “to do” list. If you’re looking for some fun things to do in the Rockford area this summer, I got you covered.   

As a college student, trips home are always the best. I get to see my family again, relax, and I’m back in the 815. I recently got to come home for Easter weekend, and one of my favorite people to hang out with (my mom) and I decided to check out Rock Cut State Park. Neither of us had been there despite being lifelong citizens of the Rockford area, and let me tell you, we have been missing out.
