Since it is Michigan, you don't really have four seasons, but you get a little of every season in every season. Springs are sometimes cold and sometimes warm, it really depends on the winter that we have had. If we have had a bitterly cold winter we get a decently nice spring, but it doesn't like to arrive until the last week of March if you are lucky. Summers are wonderful, you have a good combination of warm days and cooler days. Falls are so beautiful! You get all the colors of fall along with the warm air of Summer. Winter can be brutal sometimes, but all in all, it is really beautiful.

Living near downtown Rockford is so amazing! In the downtown community you get the feel of city but also not too crowded. There are so many little shops downtown that you can enter and everyone is so welcoming. It's nice to have a feel of home when you visit shops. In downtown Rockford there is everything! From restaurants to clothing shops to ice cream shops. One of my favorites is Custard by the Dam. Just like it sounds you get homemade custard by the Rockford dam and it is so much fun!
In this area there aren't a lot of places to go dance or clubbing, but there are some amazing restaurants that are around. One of my favorites is the Corner Bar. A place where you can go and drink but also a family oriented restaurant. They serve food anywhere from wraps to hot dogs. Hot dogs are what they are known for. They have contests of who can eat the most in a certain amount of time and you get your name on the wall and a t-shirt.
