Rock Cut State Park

Scenic park of 3,092 acres that offers many recreational options such as camping, hiking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing.

Reviewed By megturley - Machesney Park, Illinois

This park is fun for paddling, hiking and camping. Paddleboards, kayaks, canoes and paddleboats can all be rented. In the winter you can rent skis and snow shoes. They have a beach that is closed right now but hopefully will reopen next season. The beach is super cheap and a nice shallow place to bring kids to swim and have some fun in the sand. There is a place that sells food and ice cream near the main lake. The park can get crowded on warm days.

One of the finest Japanese gardens in America - comparable to the famous one in Portland, Oregon - and more complete and varied than most outside of Japan. This is absolutely worth a visit.

Forced my 15 year old daughter to go with me. It was incredible. By the time we entered into the "Gangland " area she was having a great time. They have everything Westerns... Elvis... Tons of presidential cars and memorabilia...a room dedicated to Abraham Lincoln... Three Batman cars... Tons of cool things from old TV show... The list goes on and on. This is a must visit. Admission was very reasonable and the area dedicated to old TV shows will bring back great memories. They have set up a wonderful fun atmosphere. Don't miss out... You'll be glad you visited.

Pig Minds Brewing Co.

Reviewed By KaNuiNanni - Chicago, Illinois

Travelling to and from a reuinion, we stopped here twice in a period of two days.

Day one we had the Fried Pickle Spears and they were perfectly breaded and very tasty! Other places serve pickle chips. The spears are far superior. We also shared a Buffalo Flatbread.

Day two we had the Jalepeno Boats (spicy!) and reorded the Buffalo Flatbread.

The breading on the Pickle Spears and Jalepno Boats were some of the best breading I've ever seen.

Oh yeah, the beer is also great!

Great patio that is dog friendly. Always a diverse crowd.

If they had a location in Chicago, I would eat there at least once a week. A great vegan find in the Rockford area!

Beloit Farmer's market

Reviewed By jhelena2014 - Beloit, Wisconsin

The Beloit Farmers Market is a great way to start your weekend. Get there Saturday soon after 8 a.m. with your shopping bags. The vegetables are freshly harvested and the vendors friendly. If you're looking for a gift, there are also crafts and unique metal sculptures; also dog treats, meat, fish and garden decorations and plants. Hungry? Stop at a food truck or local bagel shop. There's more...just go and see for yourself!!

Inspired Life Art Studio

Art studio offering many options for all age groups. One-day/night workshops, ongoing art classes, and art retreats feature painting, drawing, mixed media, and lettering classes.

Reviewed By RockyShoal - Illinois

This is a wonderful creative Art Studio in quaint downtown Rockton, Il. The white brick building is on a corner lot with parking in front & on the side. There are a couple of steps to get into the studio. There looks to be original wood floors and has a lot of character. They offer a number of different art mediums to work with. Tabatha, the owner makes each class fun and she always is teaching you something new. I hope if you read this review you visit the studio and take at least one class. I have taken the Art Journaling class and a Painting class. My husband, who does not consider himself to be into art even joined me for a class and we had a blast.

Rockford Speedway

Reviewed By Brookelynn T

I have grown up around the speedway and always loved going on saturday nights to watch racing. Now my son is 7 and he loves it too! The speedway has brought in several new attractions and food vendors. Can get a little pricey if ubhave a large family. But worth the wholesome fun for all!

Reviewed By Tbott2016 - Roscoe, Illinois

This trail is a good one to take nice walk or ride. It is pretty flat. The stone bridge has a lovely view from below. Make sure to walk down to the bottom. There is also a nice place to get a bite to eat and have a drink in Roscoe just off of it. Great trail for families.

Reviewed By Heather H

-affordable all day pass for a variety of bouncy houses (which get changed out periodically so kids get new experiences on subsequent visits)
-lots of arcade options for wee little ones to older teens
-quaint eating/wifi area
-great option for cold, rainy days or to beat the heat
-ticket redemption area
-super monthly events
-frequent visitor cards
-massage chairs/TV area for adults is a great idea, but the last few visits they were broken &/or dirty; I think an elevated viewing area where kids are not allowed would be a wonderful addition
