PEORIA
Arizona, U.S.A.
SPORTS FANATICS’ HAVEN
Welcome to Peoria, Arizona.
Peoria is part of the Maricopa and Yavapai counties, and with around 154,000 residents it is a major suburb to Phoenix. The city is the sixth largest in Arizona by land area, and the ninth largest by population. Peoria was named after Peoria, Illinois, which name in turn derives from the Illni word peoria; meaning prairie fire. Money Magazine listed Peoria in its Top 100 Places to Live in 2008, and it's easy to understand why. With fine art galleries, history museums and outstanding destinations like the Challenger Space Center, Peoria is a city to be remembered. Enjoy a night of dramatic flair at the Arizona Broadway Theatre, play with your kids at the water and skate parks, go bowling or catch a movie, or practice your aiming skills at one of the many shooting ranges whatever your age or preference, Peoria has you covered. Sports fanatics rejoice, because Peoria also boasts one of the country's best facilities for Spring Training baseball, and is conveniently located close to just about every major sporting venue. Watch the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners practice, or head to one of the regular season baseball, basketball and football games with top league teams like the Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns and Arizona Cardinals. Education is of the finest quality in Peoria, which is home to three public universities: University of Arizona, Northern Arizona and the Arizona State University. In addition, the city features a number of esteemed private institutions, including the acclaimed Grand Canyon University. When you're in the mood for shopping, there's no need to look further than the city of Peoria. You'll find everything from nationally renowned retail chains to small, eclectic and upscale boutiques, making sure that you don't leave with your bags empty!
