Forced my 15 year old daughter to go with me. It was incredible. By the time we entered into the "Gangland " area she was having a great time. They have everything Westerns... Elvis... Tons of presidential cars and memorabilia...a room dedicated to Abraham Lincoln... Three Batman cars... Tons of cool things from old TV show... The list goes on and on. This is a must visit. Admission was very reasonable and the area dedicated to old TV shows will bring back great memories. They have set up a wonderful fun atmosphere. Don't miss out... You'll be glad you visited.

Beloit Farmer's market

Reviewed By jhelena2014 - Beloit, Wisconsin

The Beloit Farmers Market is a great way to start your weekend. Get there Saturday soon after 8 a.m. with your shopping bags. The vegetables are freshly harvested and the vendors friendly. If you're looking for a gift, there are also crafts and unique metal sculptures; also dog treats, meat, fish and garden decorations and plants. Hungry? Stop at a food truck or local bagel shop. There's more...just go and see for yourself!!

DC Estate Winery

Reviewed By TheGreatPumpkn - Rockford, Illinois

My wife and I looked at a lot of mediocre wedding venues before finding this hidden gem. Absolutely gorgeous. We got married on the grounds and had the reception immediately afterwards in the pavilion. Our guests were floored with the venue and loved every minute of it. They were not expecting to find something this incredible in an out of the way place. Tia was the venue coordinator but she might as well of been our wedding coordinator. She took care of everything. We didn't worry about a thing. This place will continue to hold a special place in our hearts and will keep coming back for years to come.

Inspired Life Art Studio

Art studio offering many options for all age groups. One-day/night workshops, ongoing art classes, and art retreats feature painting, drawing, mixed media, and lettering classes.

Reviewed By RockyShoal - Illinois

This is a wonderful creative Art Studio in quaint downtown Rockton, Il. The white brick building is on a corner lot with parking in front & on the side. There are a couple of steps to get into the studio. There looks to be original wood floors and has a lot of character. They offer a number of different art mediums to work with. Tabatha, the owner makes each class fun and she always is teaching you something new. I hope if you read this review you visit the studio and take at least one class. I have taken the Art Journaling class and a Painting class. My husband, who does not consider himself to be into art even joined me for a class and we had a blast.

-affordable all day pass for a variety of bouncy houses (which get changed out periodically so kids get new experiences on subsequent visits)
-lots of arcade options for wee little ones to older teens
-quaint eating/wifi area
-great option for cold, rainy days or to beat the heat
-ticket redemption area
-super monthly events
-frequent visitor cards
-massage chairs/TV area for adults is a great idea, but the last few visits they were broken &/or dirty; I think an elevated viewing area where kids are not allowed would be a wonderful addition

Reviewed By Smudgecats - Chicago

I've been here a few times, and it is always fun. Class A affiliate of the Oakland A's. Ballpark is on the north side of town. Plenty of parking. Sometimes free. Good food. Check the schedule: some games have food and beer specials. (Miller Lite for a buck or two last year!)

Get grandstand seats -- covered from sun. But be aware that some row have poles at both ends that require you to hop over a row to get in. Not for those of us with lousy knees or a few years on us!

This trail is a good one to take nice walk or ride. It is pretty flat. The stone bridge has a lovely view from below. Make sure to walk down to the bottom. There is also a nice place to get a bite to eat and have a drink in Roscoe just off of it. Great trail for families.

Angela's Attic

Reviewed By Zebra_45678 - Indianapolis, Indiana

This is a huge antique mall. There is a large amount of vintage and antique items, as well as a few booth with newer stuff. Some areas are bit flea market and arts and crafts and some booths were really cluttered. I think this is about 40/30/30 on antiques, vintage, flea market/crafts. I thought the prices were OK on most items I've seen in the past.

You need a good 3 hours to get through the whole place. Staff is friendly, and they are short on staff too. I doubt I would stop here, just too many booths with newer items for me.

Turtle Island Playground

Reviewed By holdthephoneplease - Rockford, IL

A unique little park, totally free, wish I'd have found it sooner!

A little manmade stream runs through the playground, and kids are able to play in it.

Nice, clean sand pit with fake dinosaur bones, cool for the future dino digger.

Well-built wooden structure with platforms, great for climbing and playing, a decent slide, probably intimidating for teeny ones.

My kids like the lion head water fountain and big turtle sculpture.

Only negatives are a few bees (it's outdoors, what can ya do) and the parents who pay no attention to their kids knocking kids off the slides and such.

There's also nearby paddle boats for rental and a very basic snack bar (cash only for both) and an indoor and outdoor facility for events. A lot of grad parties, community events, and such.
