I was in Peoria, Illinois the other day.  And I have to admit, there doesn’t seem to be a lot to the city.  Lots of strip malls, open fields and country roads. Now I didn’t get as far as the river front, and from what I read, that is where I should have gone.

I did however stumble upon this pretty little park.  The variety of trees along the lake in various states of fall color made for a lovely break in a very long day.  peoria-park
