Enjoy big city amenities with a small town feel. Located halfway between Chicago and St. Louis in the heart of Illinois, Peoria is nestled along the Illinois River, with a vibrant riverfront where you can enjoy a concert, take in one of the city's many festivals, grab a bite to eat or take a stroll up and down Peoria's breathtaking trails.
Whether it is outdoor recreation at one of Peoria's many golf courses, taking your kids to the zoo or watching buffalo and elk roam free at Wildlife Prairie Park, you will not be disappointed. If you prefer to be indoors, check out the Caterpillar Visitor Center or view one of the many exhibits at the Peoria Riverfront Museum, gaze at the stars in the museum Planetarium or watch a movie in the all-digital Giant Screen theater.
Come spend some time and enjoy Peoria to its fullest.
