One of the biggest benefits of living in Rockford is that you have the great outdoors right on your doorstep, with some many open spaces to explore. Rock Cut State Park is a weekend favorite with locals and offers a wide range of leisure activities including hiking, camping, cycling, horse-riding and even cross country skiing in the winter!
The Anderson Japanese Gardens and Kletum Arboretum and Botanic Garden are welcome escapes from the state’s third largest city and it certainly feels a million miles away from the busy streets of Downtown Chicago which is around 90 minutes away.
The proximity to Chicago is ideal for a weekend trip to enjoy some of the country’s best museum and art galleries such as the Art Institute of Chicago or, if Chicago’s streets get too hectic, head into Millennium Park to relax and watch the world go by.
Rockford’s location is also ideal if you are planning a vacation as O’Hare International Airport is easily accessible. Just remember to check that your passport is still valid if you are planning on travelling internationally. If you ever do experience any issues related to your passport then the solution is easy: just pop into Travel Visa Pro’s office in the heart of Downtown Chicago to seek advice from the specialists. The office is just a few blocks from the Magnificent Mile, so the location could not be better. These experts will provide an efficient and hassle-free service ensuring your application is completed promptly.
Anyone needing a replacement passport at short notice, maybe you have an urgent business meeting that requires you to travel or a family emergency, can also visit our passport renewal agency in Rockford to apply through an expedited passport service to guarantee that your passport will arrive in time, even if it is needed later that same day!
