Rockford Apartments for Rent
The Rock River runs through the heart of downtown Rockford, providing a scenic location for the shops, restaurants, theaters, and museums that populate the area. Rockford is located in northern central Illinois and it is the county seat of Winnebago County.
With a nickname like “City of Gardens,” you know you’ve found someplace special to rent your apartment – Rockford is home to the Klehm Arboretum and Botanic Garden, the Anderson Japanese Gardens, and the Sinnissippi gardens. Rockford is roughly 40 miles from both Madison, Wisconsin and Chicago, Illinois, providing big-city nightlife and entertainment within a short drive.
Kids – and the kid in you – will appreciate that Rockford was once known for making toys. The sock monkey hails from here, and Testor Corporation, which makes model kits and other craft kits, is still located in Rockford. Although industry is no longer the driving force in Rockford’s economy, tourism, government, medical, and high-tech companies provide job opportunities for residents.
Weekends in Rockford are filled with fun. From your new Rockford apartment, you’ll have access to more than 10,000 acres of parks and forest preserves. Go hiking, biking, boating, swimming, camping, and more. Golfing is a popular activity with more than a dozen golf courses. During the winter months, go sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and ice-skating.
