Rockford will soon have another sunny spot to fly too in Florida.

We are lucky here in Rockford to have an International airport to fly out of when we need a quick getaway and now we will have a new destination to go to.

Starting this November, Allegiant Air is set to fly to Sarasota, Florida on Wednesdays and Saturdays from November 23 to April 15.

FLY RFD is definitely getting us excited to try a trip to Sarasota:
