Rockford IL Real Estate
Rockford Illinois is known by locals as “the Forest City,” but the elms that give this city its nickname are probably not the reason for its recent success. Rockford is a city on the rise. Located almost the same distance from Chicago as it is from Milwaukee, Rockford provides its citizens with the option of taking daytrips to either city as an hour and a half drive is all it will take. But there are many reasons to live in Rockford. The city is also known as “the City of Gardens” and is becoming recognized for being able to balance a big city feel with a small town atmosphere. The city is currently in economic boom and is ranked highly on the quality of living scale. The city’s school system is well regarded. The housing market is also notable as it is considered one of the most affordable cities to live in the Midwest. On a final note, Hockey fans will fit right in, as Rockford is the home of the IceHogs, the AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks. Interested in Rockford IL Real Estate?
