District Vision East State Street D


Te East State Street District, stretching from the Rock River to the 600 block, is a hub of activity in Rockford’s City Center. Traditional neighborhood services, along with social eateries, art galleries, and unique retail shops bring energy to the ground floor of historic mixed-use buildings that are home to upper-story residences and offices. Street vendors sell tasty treats and children play in the new parks that have popped up in place of previously vacant lots. A new Rockford City Market brings together farmers, artisans, quality independent vendors, performers, and customers from across the region, while events such as a weekly beer garden and festivals encourage return visitation and make the City Market a ritual for Rockfordians. Te East State Street District remains animated in the evenings, with families out for ice cream, young professionals enjoying an after-work drink on a patio, and couples dining at one of the many ethnic restaurants. Te iconic boutique hotel provides locals and visitors with a one-of-a-kind lodging experience, with quality meeting space, in the heart of Rockford’s vibrant East State Street District.
