The Midwest winters aren’t usually one of Rockford’s best selling points, but Money Inc. thinks we have something pretty cool to do when the temps near zero.
The Eclipse Lagoon at Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens was listed as one of seven of the “Coolest Places to Ice Skate in the U.S.”
It’s a good list. Rockford is mentioned along with such tourist destinations as Jackson, Wyoming, Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Kansas City, Missouri.
So bring on winter.
