Peoria, Illinois


Welcome to Peoria!

You’ll find BIG CITY  amenities with a small town feel. Peoria is 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.

We  invite you to visit and enjoy all the amenities Peoria has to offer. 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 State 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 at their Planetarium or watch a movie at their giant, all digital screen theater.

We are sure you will find plenty of unique attractionsshopping and restaurants to enjoy Peoria to its fullest.
