This summer in Rockford, here are five things to do with your family.

Family Time In The Summer

I really enjoy time with my family. I especially like going on little adventures. We do not even have to leave the Rockford area to find some fun.

I hear people all the time say things like there is nothing ever to do in Rockford or I am bored. Well, I think they have not even looked. There are so many amazing things to keep you entertained in the Forest City.

In fact, this is the best time of year during the summer because there are so many options. You can head outside or stay indoors. Either way, the list is filled with possibilities.

I will even get you started.
