    Peoria is something different in Illinois

    Set on the bends of the Illinois River about a 2 and a half hour drive from Chicago, Peoria is a pretty little city that beckons visitors with the promise of leafy gardens, off-beat art fairs, rich Midwestern history – it's the oldest European settlement in the state – and plenty more. If you're hoping to stroll between the flower blooms of Glen Oak Park or encounter elegant paddlewheel riverboats on the Illinois River, you can seek out Peoria vacation rentals. They range from handsome Victorian mansions and relaxing stately homes to cozy pioneer-style cottages.

    Peoria is a place to trace the Midwestern past

    Look one way and there's a grand Victorian mansion, look another and there's a gorgeous Greek Revival home or a handsome Parisian style tenement. That's just what life is like strolling through the various National Historic Register areas of old Peoria, a town where the history reaches all the way back to 1691 with the coming of European explorers to America. Peoria vacation rentals on the Illinois riverfront will put you close to the top museums and the main heritage sites, not to mention plenty of cocktail bars and BBQ joints.

    Peoria's museums await

    Classic carriages and mind-boggling sculpture works, tales of Abe Lincoln and an odyssey of homegrown Illinois artists await at the acclaimed Peoria Riverfront Museum. It's a real must for anyone who wants to get to grips with the long heritage and creative culture of the city, offering regular arts workshops, touring history exhibits, a planetarium and big-screen theater. If you prefer diggers and hulking mining trucks, then the Caterpillar Visitors Center right next door might be a better choice.

    Peoria is perfect with the sun shining

    With all of its leafy parks and pretty riverfront walks along the Illinois, Peoria is best explored when the sun's shining. You're likely to bag the hottest weather and the smallest amount of rainfall from spring to fall, with the mercury cranking up after May and going strong all the way to September. It is also possible to enjoy the art and culture of this old Midwestern town in the winter months. You can seek out cozy Peoria vacation rentals between November and January that are sure to keep you toasty and warm.

    Peoria's parks and waterways

    Peoria sits in the heartlands of Illinois, on the banks of the Illinois River as it swells to form Peoria Lake and Upper Peoria Lake. The result is a town with plenty of water everywhere you look. You'll find leafy parks and promenades running alongside the riverside, offering views over classic bridges and plenty of picnic spots besides. Glen Oak Park is located just a little way from the Downtown area. It's packed with wild animal enclosures courtesy of the Peoria Zoo – think giraffes, Madagascan bugs and tigers – and multicolored flowerbeds in the Luthy Botanical Garden.
