Getting to the Rockford Region is easy, especially if you live in Chicago (60 miles from O'Hare), Madison (60 miles) or Milwaukee (80 miles). And once you're here, you'll feel like you're a million miles from the work-a-day world of home.
So whether you're looking for a weekend getaway, a group tour destination or great meeting place, getting here is as about as easy as saying "Real, Original Rockford."
