What do you like about Rockford? Not much. There are some good local bands, but they don't get much suport. There is a pretty good comic shop north of the city called Tomorrow is Yesterday. Gazardo's is a pretty good music store (instuments). The community college is pretty decent despite the bafoons in the administration.

What do you dislike about Rockford? When the weather is nice there is road construction everywhere. The local media whines when Money Magazine ranks this town #299 or 300 in their top 300 cities list.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? My house. There is realy not anything to do.

How expensive is it? It's not to expensive, but the jobs that most people can get have very bad pay.

Is it safe? it's okay

How is the weather? The weather sucks. In Rockford the four seasons are; almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.

Additional thoughts? This town's main saving grace is that it's 1.5 - 2 hours to Chicago.
