A nice drive along the Rock River

January 22, 2022

Grab a cup of coffee at the Rockford Roasting Company and then head south along the Rock River, past the Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden, through Byron and Oregon, through the Lowden Miller Forest and on into Dixon where you can visit the Corner Spot Bar and Grill. A pleasant drive, especially during the fall.
