Most Popular Area Attractions

Dozer Park

Originally O'Brien Field, Dozer Park was established in 2002 in downtown Peoria of north-central Illinois. Found by Interstate 74 near cities like East Peoria and Morton, Dozer Park is owned and operated by the Peoria Chiefs Community Baseball LLC.

Dozer Park is home to both MWL's Peoria Chiefs – the St. Louis Cardinals' Class A affiliate team – and the Bradley Braves college baseball team from Bradley University. The 7,500-seat ballpark also features 20 luxury suites, concessions, and more in downtown River City.

General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport

North-central Illinois residents and visitors have been flying on commercial flights from Peoria, since 1932. The General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport was established after Peoria citizens voted for the city to have a commercial airport. Chicago & Southern Airlines and American Airlines were the first two commercial airlines offering flights from the airport's four runways. This central Illinois airport was named in honor of the late Wayne A. Downing, a four-star United States Army General, who was born in Peoria.

This 3,800 acre airport's two runways also serve as the home base for the Peoria Air National Guard's 182d Airlift Wing. Travelers looking for a commercial flight to Atlanta, Detroit, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and St. Petersburg can do so via United Express Airlines, Delta Airlines, American Eagle Airlines, and Allegiant Airlines.

Illinois State University

"Gladly We Learn and Teach" is the school motto for Illinois State University, the oldest of all public universities in the state.

Established in 1857, ISU was originally known as the Illinois State Normal University.

Along with its history, ISU also features exciting sports. The ISU Redbirds play football in the fall at Hancock Stadium, baseball in the spring at Duffy Bass Field, and basketball in the winter at Redbird Arena.
