2019 Rock Falls Area Visitor's Guide Information

Rock Falls Tourism is excited to get started on 2019 and we have not wasted any time in doing so. In an effort to give everyone the most for their advertisements, we have started efforts to get business listing sales in order in a slightly shorter length of time so we want to let everyone know that ad space, business listing space, and event listing space is open. We have already had a large amount of interest in the 2019 Rock Falls Area Visitor's Guide and we would also like to thank everyone that has already listed their business or purchased ad space! 

Here is some information on distribution locations and reach:

• Tourist Information Centers at all the major entries into Illinois
• 5000 copies are distributed by direct mail to the western suburbs of Chicago
• Distributed to 3 oases; DeKalb, O’Hare, and Belvidere
• Locally, they are at the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, Days Inn, Holiday Inn Express & Suites and Super 8, at local area attractions, and any business that requested them.

Remember to check the box on your order form if you would like to be one of our distribution locations.

This year we are updating the guide with new pictures, and new information on the features of the Rock Falls area community.  We still have quite the reach planned for distruibution of the Visitor's Guide, including the Quad Cities and the Chicago area and suburbs.  

There are listing options for every type of budget from full page ads to a single business listing. If you would like to reserve your business listing or ad space please contact Carol at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Anyone that has previously listed in the Visitor's Guide, and any registered business will also be getting information mailed to them very soon. Time is limited and space will close on February 28, 2019. Thank you for being a part of the valuable Business Community!

If you have an event to promote in the guide, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The deadline to get events listed in the guide is March 22. There is NO COST to submit your event to the 2019 Calendar of events. 

We're looking forward to all your events this summer as well as the ones we have for you and the surrounding communities! Thank you again and I look forward to keeping you updated on everything we have coming.

Travel On!
