Peoria Overview

Official Tourism Site:

Peoria (population 154,000) is a major suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. Peoria is currently the sixth largest city in Arizona for land area, and the ninth largest for population.

Travelers might most closely associate Peoria with baseball. With one of the country's best facilities for spring training -- not to mention year-round Arizona Summer and Fall League games -- and convenient access to just about every major sporting venue, Peoria is a sunny playground for sports lovers.

Peoria is surrounded by the rugged beauty and breathtaking terrain of the Sonoran desert. Its stunning sunsets and statuesque saguaros serve as a spectacular backdrop for a city that beckons just about anyone to venture outdoors.

Peoria is also home to the Challenger Space Center, which welcomes more than 33,000 students each year in a variety of field trips, workshops and team builders that provide important life skills in addition to a wealth of knowledge and opportunities for innovation and exploration.
