Record Year for Local Tourism

ROCKFORD (WIFR) – New numbers out today show a record number of people are visiting the Rockford area. They’re bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars to the Stateline and spending five percent more than last year. The Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau says Anderson Gardens and the Downtown City Market continue to be some of the biggest draws

"One thing that is really important is that we have new and engaging exciting experiences for our visitors and we market those aggressively,” said RACVB President John Groh.

Tourism supports nearly 2,700 jobs in our area.
