Peoria is a city in and the county seat of Peoria County, Illinois, United States, and the largest city on the Illinois River. Kids will enjoy Peoria Riverfront Museum and Illinois State Museum.

Explore Peoria's surroundings by going to Springfield (The Lincoln Home Visitor Center, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, & more), Antique Archeology (in Le Claire) and Utica (Starved Rock State Park, Matthiessen State Park, & more). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Caterpillar Visitors Center, try your luck at Harrah's Joliet Casino, get to know the resident critters at Peoria Zoo, and explore the engaging exhibits at Children's Discovery Museum.
