Blog: Spotlight on...Peoria, Arizona

Peoria Arizona Landscape

Arrowhead Valley will be opening its doors summer 2018! Peoria, named one of Forbes Magazine's 2017 best places to retire, has so much to offer as a destination for entertainment. 

Desert Botanical Garden

Just 21 miles away in Papago Park, the Desert Botanical Garden is a 140-acre garden oasis dedicated to the understanding, protection, and preservation of the desert’s stunning natural beauty.

Phoenix Art Museum

Visit the largest art museum in the southwestern United States, a stunning piece of modern art itself, which provides access to art from all over the world to the people of Arizona.

Tacos and Mariachi

In this part of the world, Mexican food rules. And Phoenicians, as the locals are called, argue over the best restaurants the way New Yorkers argue over pizza. Commit to a hobby of discovery, searching out the city’s best carnitas.

Hotel San Carlos

Despite its downtown transformation, Phoenix still has a couple of old-world gems, including the Hotel San Carlos. On the National Register of Historic Places, the rooftop pool and cocktail lounge were once frequented by such stars as Mae West and Marilyn Monroe.

Pioneer Living History Museum

Just north of Peoria off Interstate 17 stands 90 acres dedicated to the re-creation of an early 1800s town, complete with authentic buildings and historically accurate reproductions. Visit the actual cabin that survived Arizona’s bloodiest range war.

Cactus League Baseball

One of the country's best facilities for spring training baseball (the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners train here) - and year-round Arizona Summer and Fall League games, Peoria is a sunny playground for sports lovers.
