Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Peoria, Illinois!
In the center of the American prairie, Native Americans had staked out the region some 12,000 years before Peoria became the first town in Illinois settled by Europeans. Advent of the paddlewheel steamboat brought growth, linking the Illinois River town, just south of its Senachwine Lake source, to Mississippi River commercial traffic previously thwarted by upstream currents. Trains spurred community prosperity as well, and Peoria for many years ranked as the fourth largest regional hub in the U.S. railway system, serving some 15 railroads. Peoria's depot is now a thriving restaurant complex, with excellent dining and live music.
Waters from Peoria Mineral Springs, thought to be over 14,000 years old and still drawing devotees, supported beer and soft drink enterprises in the mid-1800s, as well as what at the time was the nation's largest whiskey producer. The Duryea, often in a three-wheel configuration and sometimes called the Peoria Motor Trap, was once produced in Peoria, and the oldest known, fully restored Peoria-built Duryea is on exhibit at the Peoria Public Library. Other Peoria attractions range from the African American Museum Hall of Fame and the Apollo Fine Arts & Entertainment Center to Apple Blossom Farm and Conclin's Barn II Dinner Theatre.
Both the mid-Victorian Petttengill-Morron House and the American Federalist style Flanagan House on Peoria's east bluff operate as museums and are listed on the National Register for Historic Homes. Forests and streams around Peoria afford hiking, fishing and other water sports, while nurturing agricultural production. Anglers regard the area where Lake Senachwine pours into the Illinois River as the Sauger Capital of the World, especially in autumn when fish are largest and most plentiful, a fact not lost on area restaurateurs often taking advantage of fresh catch and fall harvests. Shoppers flock to Bergner's at the Shoppes at Grand Prairie and to Apache Junction with specialty stores for pottery, flutes, and southwest jewelry. Peoria lodging options range from family owned motels to nationally known hotels.
