Every year thousands of people leave vacation time unused at the end of the year. The Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau wants to make sure you're not one of them this year. 

The excuse of not having enough time or money to go anywhere won't hold water if you go to RACVBs planning event for National Plan For Vacation Day on January 31 at their downtown office.

Area representatives will be on hand to give you ideas on what to do in the area for all budgets and ages. It's amazing what you don't know is available to to around here. Each week Andrea from RACVB drops by and lets us know about something I've never heard of before.

So head over to their office at 102 N. Main Street next Tuesday from 11-2 and let them tell you something about Rockford you've never heard before.
