ROCKFORD – The Reader’s Digest has put Rockford on its “15 Best Places to Move to in the U.S. (Before They Get Too Crowded)” list.
According to the magazine, Rockford is among the U.S. cities that are flying under the radar as perfect destinations to set up house and put down roots.
“Rockford’s small-town charm and unsuspecting, cultural, culinary, and outdoors spaces make it a fun, noteworthy destination for those looking for a truly off-the-beaten-path experience,” Reader’s Digest said about the city. “Among its many charms, you can spend time at one of the nation’s oldest internet cafes, wakeboard at a cable-run wake park, and stroll through one of North America’s top Japanese gardens.”
The magazine notes that early settlers dubbed Rockford the “Forest City” for its more than 10,000 acres of natural land that attracts outdoor enthusiasts from miles around. It also mentioned the museums, including the Discovery Center, and the under-construction convention center.
Other cities on the list include Ann Arbor, Michigan; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Salt Lake City and State College, Pennsylvania. R.
