Things to do in Peoria

For the most part, you may know of Peoria as the home of major league baseball’s spring training. While America’s Favorite Pastime is great, Peoria brings a lot more to the table than just overpriced hot dogs. P83, Peoria’s entertainment district, is the place to be on a weekend night. From sushi, to pizza, to Mexican fare and more, there is something for every palate here. If you’re more in the mood for a drink rather than a bite, you can find wine or brew, or even a cup of artisanal coffee if it’s a little too early to imbibe. All of these great amenities are located nearby to the Victoria Sports Complex, which hosts the spring training games, so there’s plenty of ways to keep the fun going pre-and-post-game.
