I stayed at the Marriott across the street and attended a concert in the theater section. I really enjoyed my view of their civic center building - wonderful use of glass and a park-like outdoor area. There was large area in the theater lobby with tables and chairs for relaxing before and at intermission time, and plenty of refreshment available. in this area there are two older , yet stunning buildings - City Hall and the Sacred Church - all surrounded by very modern buildings. It made for a good place to be on a beautiful day in a park-like setting.

This is probably the greatest civic center of a city Peoria's size in the country. It is amazing how many things can go on there at the same time. Also the number to things that can go on there in a day. We have been there to watch the arena floor go from a basketball court to a hockey rink. It's just a fun place.

Whether a Bradley University basketball game, a night at the theater, a concert, or a mega fund raising event, The Peoria Civic Center does a fine job all around. Organized and centrally located downtown, parking is good, employees are friendly and the center is always quite attractive and well kept.
