You probably won't often feel the need to leave Rockford but, if you do, downtown GR is a 15 min. drive and a trip north to Traverse City is 2 hours.
Smart people and taxes at work. The city planning and the utilization of tax money here is smart; it has helped make the downtown such a vibrant and thriving area for the community. It's nice to live somewhere you feel the taxes paid really are at work for the benefit of you and others.
