How can you not check out a positive list about beautiful places around the United States. Don't believe it? See for yourself.

Viewfinder, Expedia's travel blog, put together of their own list of most beautiful places in all 50 states, and Rockford made the list.

It shouldn't be a surprise, though. Rockford has many places of beauty resting within the city limits. Anderson Japanese Gardens, Midway Village, and Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens are just a few places. But what, specifically, got Rockford on this list?

Rockford is certainly a catch. Whether you’re picking honey crisp apples at Curran’s Orchard or doting on the intricate Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum & Gardens, you’re in for a treat when you explore this Midwest city. But if tut, tut, it looks like rain, don’t worry, it won’t put a damper on your sightseeing; Rockford Rain Art has a genius installation, in which artwork magically appears on wet sidewalks in certain parts of town!

It's hard to argue - just look at these photos.

It's pretty awesome to see great pictures representing Rockford in a positive way. #LoveIt
