International Visitors to Rockford

Rockford, Illinois USA … just an easy 60-minute drive from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, the portal to America’s heartland.

Despite our small-city size, Illinois’ Rockford Region hosts international visitors from around the world every day. 

Our international visitors come to conduct business, to discover the “real” America and to visit friends and relatives. They enjoy the same things American visitors love about our area: gardens, golf, shopping, the arts, culture, friendly people and affordable prices.
