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.

Lake Pleasant near Peoria

Lake Pleasant is not only the closest water feature to the Phoenix area, it’s also one of the biggest. Driving through the neighborhoods of Peoria will quickly make apparent that this is a place where water worshippers live! In yards and driveways you will see boats, jet skis, and kayaks. Peoria is the place to be in the valley if you know you’ll want to be out on the water often, as Lake Pleasant is just about a twenty minute drive. Who knew you could live so close to the water in the middle of the desert?

It isn’t just those who love being on the water who like to live in Peoria, plenty of outdoorsy folks are content just to be near it. Campers and RVs dot the neighborhood drives and garages in excess because the locals love to get out and about on the weekends and beat that desert heat by heading to the lake. One of the best things about Lake Pleasant is that you don’t have to have a boat to enjoy the area. There’s plenty of campgrounds and picnic areas, as well as beaches to enjoy just for the day, or a whole weekend.

I recently moved to Phoenix from out of state and found Greg through his series of online videos for AZ Live Style Group. Buying a house when coming from another state is challenging, but I can say I found the ideal partner and agent in Greg. In a very challenging market, Greg's deep knowledge of the Phoenix area market, his patience, and especially his dedication to helping me find the right home was exactly what I needed. Greg took the time to help me learn the market, explore neighborhoods, and find the right home! I'm excited to start my next chapter here in Phoenix and I cannot recommend Greg highly enough for anyone who needs a great partner in finding their perfect home.

Greg really listened to what we wanted and made the whole process super easy. He didn’t try to sell us on a property that we weren’t interesting in but was also able to show us a few places that we might not have found on our own. Will definitely continue to use Greg in the future.

Greg is awesome! Found him on his Youtube channel about 1.5 years ago when I was planning to move to AZ. I worked with Greg over the phone and finally in person a year ago. He found me the perfect home in Chandler. He guided me through the whole offer process with an anticipated bidding war. His strategy worked. I won the offer in 24 hrs and closed in 30 days. Everything went perfectly and love the home after 1 year. Greg's in-depth knowledge of the area, the market conditions and the strategy to close the deal was perfect spot on. I felt almost no stress and he managed all the details thru the closing. Professionalism on display!

We have worked with Greg on selling 2 homes and buying 2 homes. Greg is a professional through and through. He was always available to jump on a call to discuss whatever was going on. His experience and guidance helped us make great decisions during the process of buying and selling our homes.
