As a Rockfordian since birth, I am so proud of the advancements that our city is making, especially Downtown.

The close attention city officials are paying to the area is really starting to show, and it is time to get out there and enjoy it!

Tonight, (Thursday), from 6 to 9 p.m. Rockford's River District Association is holding a Historic Walking Tour of Downtown, and it looks like the weather should be perfect for the stroll.

For just $25 you can learn about the history and transformation of Water and North Madison Streets, and the chance to explore a number of iconic spots in the River District including:

  • Riverview train depot
  • River East Lofts
  • Indoor City Market
  • Spafford Square and many more!

The tour includes drinks and appetizers from Taco Betty's, and you do need to reserve your spot for the tour in advance, but it's not too late to do so. Just click here now to sign up, and enjoy the tour tonight!
