It's hard to believe that the first month of the year is almost over and by now, most of us have given up on not just our New Year's resolution, but we've given up on doing pretty much anything that requires leaving the house. It's Illinois, that's just how we do in the winter months.

But in case you're suffering from severe cabin fever or you're an overachiever and have already started planning for the warmer months ahead, make sure these are on your list of things to do in 2016. Might I add that these are all things you can do right here in Rockford? This list will surely come in handy when you know who says "I'm bored" or "there's nothing to do in Rockford." I beg to differ. (and feel free to add your own ideas to the list)
