Peoria’s Grandview Drive

If the idea of an old-fashioned Sunday drive sounds like the perfect afternoon to you, we recommend heading down Grandview Drive in Peoria. This is a 180-acre place where anyone can go to enjoy the view and some fresh air. If you want to see something truly breathtaking, visit in the fall when the leaves change color.

Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail

The Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail offers something for everyone. Not only will you be able to enjoy the open road and wooded areas alike, but there are also plenty of beautiful, historical stops along the way. You can also park and walk the trails along the way for a bit more fresh air and sunshine.
