East Peoria, IL
East Peoria, IL Area Information
East Peoria is located in Tazewell County and stands on the shore of the Illinois River. It is a growing, modern city nicknamed "The City of Lights" for its annual festival.
Residents enjoy exceptional living places in a seemingly endless array of beautiful homes built among the trees that cover the high hills and steep ravines to the east river bottom lands. East Peorians live close to nature and enjoy outdoor activities. The natural hilly and wooded terrain that makes up much of the city's eastern area enhances the quality of life enjoyed by residents. So, too, do the splendid facilities of Fondulac Park District offering more than 1,100 acres in park areas.
Since East Peoria built its first log schoolhouse early in its history, education has been a treasured commodity. East Peoria has high-quality public school systems and support with equal vigor an in-town community college.
East Peorians enjoy a unique residential environment. Some distance away from the river, the land rises sharply, creating a series of ridges before flattening into prairie farm land. It is along these picturesque ridges, with their accompanying wooded ravines, that much of the city's housing is located. Many homes, like those along Fondulac Drive and Highview Road, have impressive views of the Illinois River Valley, the city skyline of Peoria beyond or distant hills.
There is a home in East Peoria to match any budget and any lifestyle. The elegant townhomes and luxury condominiums of Harbor Pointe are the perfect setting for East Peoria waterfront living along the Illinois River. The homes overlook the upscale EastPort Marina, a $20,000,000 project with 520 boat slips, plus restaurants and shops. Attractive, mid-size single family homes dominate the community's residential areas. Many streets end in cul de sacs with homes on both sides backed by dense woods and ravines. Even in areas where cozy looking apartment buildings and duplex homes stand, the character of the landscape is equally pleasing.
