Port of Peoria

Peoria is an American city in Illinois -- situated right on the Illinois River -- where visitors can enjoy the facilities offered by a mid-sized city along with plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature. With its beautiful riverfront area and diverse population, Peoria is an interesting and dynamic destination where visitors can do anything from hike trails in Peoria Forest Park Reserve to peruse fine art and natural history at the Peoria Riverfront Museum, which also features a domed planetarium.

Peoria also has a thriving arts community and nightlife scene, so you might even be able to catch a live show while you're in town -- whether you're more into cabaret or glass blowing, there are lots of options.
