Just a 90-minute drive from Rockford is where you'll find your next great overnight filled with fun, romance, shopping, wine-sipping and fabulous meals.

I follow an account on Instagram that shares relationship advice and they recently shared something that my wife and I are making our new goals. It's called the 2-2-2 Rule.

What is the 2-2-2 Rule?

The 2-2-2 Rule is three steps to putting some good mojo into your relationship. the rule says:

Every 2 Weeks:

A night out

Every 2 months:

A weekend away

Every 2 years:

A week-long vacation

With the 2-2-2 Rule in mind, finding six great spots within a short drive from Rockford for an overnight stay, is the mission. let's zero in on one inn that is said to be better than the rest.
