The Peoria RiverFront Association
The west shore of the Illinois River has been a center of commerce and urban activity since the first Europeans populated the Peoria area in the mid-1600s. As the area grew, the RiverFront District became the center of business and industry, offering merchants and industrialists easy access to water and rail transportation.
Warehouses, breweries, food processors and commercial distributors gave the area its unique flavor. The grand old buildings located in today's Peoria RiverFront District are a composite of these previous lives, adaptively reused to welcome and accommodate modern visitors.
The Peoria RiverFront District is now an area graced with attractions and venues for people of all ages and all walks of life, including culture, entertainment, dining, residential living, historical and educational interest, and recreational activities.
