A pocket suburb that’s cozied up next to Glendale and Surprise, Peoria offers fun in the sun as well as the stars.

Right Now

Paddle and splash, munch on peanuts and popcorn, or blast off into outer space: the choice is yours in Peoria. Well, actually, you don’t have to choose – you can do it all!

It’s easy to see why Money magazine listed Peoria as a Top 100 Place to Live. The New River runs through town, which is beneficial to residents and visitors alike. Head to the New River Trail for running, walking, or cycling near the water’s edge. Lake Pleasant, which is well deserving of its name, offers more water recreation – many outfitters have kayaks and canoes available for rent. Or let someone else navigate on a riverboat cruise.

If you’re more comfortable on the green than on the water, check out the city’s five courses. And each spring, a pair of sports teams gather here: The Peoria Sports Complex is the spring training home for San Diego and Seattle.
