Peoria is a great community that has many of the amenities you find in large cities, including a symphony orchestra, professional theatre companies, a ballet troupe, professional sports, and a civic center, where national acts perform nearly every week. It is the worldwide headquarters of Caterpillar, Inc., and home to Bradley University, which was ranked 3rd among Midwestern comprehensive universities by U.S. News & World Report.
Peoria is also notable for what you won't find. Like long commutes, high crime rates, or a high cost of living. All this, along with solid Midwestern values, makes Peoria a family-friendly place to live.
