Situated along the Illinois River, Peoria's downtown RiverFront district is an exciting place to stay. Stay downtown and you can enjoy the city's many restaurants, museums, historic sites, and entertainment venues. In Peoria, Caterpillar (the iconic yellow construction equipment manufacturer) has a highly rated visitor's center, where guests can get hands on, and even climb in, the heavy equipment. Make sure to save time for this impressive attraction.

Budget minded travelers will be happy to know that Peoria's lively downtown is easily accessible from both the north and the east.

When to Visit Peoria, Illinois

The best time to visit Peoria is during the summer (June, July, or August). This is when the weather is warmest and the rain not so frequent. The heart of Peoria is the riverside, and the city schedules many of its events and festivals in this area to coincide with warm summer weather. Expect temperature highs of around 80 degrees.

If you prefer cooler (but still warm) temperatures, consider visiting Peoria during the shoulder season in September and October, when the high is around 70 degrees. There are still plenty of outdoor events, or you can enjoy Peoria's inside attractions, like art exhibits or the Caterpillar Visitor Center.

In March, basketball fans descend on Peoria to enjoy March Madness and to experience the town's interactive (and huge) March Madness Experience event held at the Exhibition Hall in the Civic Center. Hotel rates in Peoria may go up during this popular event. Remember to shop around when looking for a budget-friendly hotel in Peoria during March.
