Rockford makes a ‘beautiful’ list

Creators of lists and rankings typically haven’t been too kind to Rockford the past couple of decades. This week, the travel site Expedia included Rockford in a list that city marketers should trumpet all over Social Media.

Author Chloe Mulliner picked Rockford as its Illinois representative on a list of the “Most Beautiful Towns in All 50 States.”

Mulliner’s one-paragraph description of Rockford:

“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!”
