Peoria is a city that is constantly changing and growing. I feel like I have received a great education in the Peoria Unified School District. They continue to make improvements to keep up with the every changing world. The city has also added attractions in the P83 area. You can find many restaurants and hotels in the area around the spring training fields. Overall Peoria is a great place to live.
This city is equipped with pretty much everything. There is a gas station on almost every corner and a shopping mall within a couple miles of each other. I have lived here all my life and it has been amazing. The weather is great; cold but no snow in the winter and warm to where it feels like a nice massage in the summer.
What I like about this area is that it is nice and peaceful. There are plenty of mountains to hike.
I love the city I live in. The people are always so nice, and always willing to talk. My family has grown up here and we will continue to stay here.
I love it here. This is our “we will live here u til we die” state. It’s sunny year round. You can plan your life and activities because of the weather.
Peoria is an alright town located N/W of Phoenix. It has a lot of locally owned restaurants and bars. It is a family friendly part of the valley of the sun. When it is not 115° outside there are plenty of outdoor activities to do. There are 4 or 5 sports complexes where you can play softball, soccer, take your kids to the splash pads and plenty of youth sports to keep your kids involved in something productive. Overall you can raise your family in the safety of a close knit community.
Decent area to live in. All the essential stores are close in distance to most neighborhoods, as are several options in schools. Not the nicest of neighborhoods overall, not a lot of planted nature and some areas look down right dirty, but not overly horrible in quality.
Peoria is great. It is full of nice people and is a great place to raise a family. I can see myself living here and starting a family in this area.
Downtown Peoria has the perfect small town feel outside of a big city. Several public art installations are within walking distance of each other and it is quite quaint.
Quiet neighborhoods, moderate pricing for housing or rental properties. Minutes away from downtown and sporting venues.
I like Peoria. Not a whole lot because I am not a huge fan of the desert. However, the people are somewhat friendly and everything is really close. I always have to laugh when my mom says something is "All the way out in Mesa," because being a Washington native, where I lived, you had to drive 30 minutes just to get Wendy's!
Born and raised here. Schools are good and great growth over the past 20 years. Great place to raise kids and start a family.
I have lived here my entire life. I like everything about this city besides the traffic, but other than that I find it to be a great city to live in.
I moved to Peoria in early 2020 and I find that people here are very pet-friendly and calm. There are many places to hike and see beautiful parks and views. My neighbours are also wonderful people. Due to covid, finding outdoor activities, such as playing sports, in nature has been the most important and useful for both me and my family's mental health. The traffic here is usually light compare to Los Angeles where I used to live. Peoria has a family-oriented and relaxing environment. In terms of public transportation, Peoria does not have the greatest options. I have only seen a couple of metro stops and buses here as compared to LA. The weather here is quite hot and humid, especially during summer times, but what I do like about the seasons here is that you do have the option to go see some beautiful and the most perfect snow only 2 hours away in Flagstaff. It also hails sometimes here during the winter season. Overall, I would recommend anyone to visit this city if possible!
I like Peoria cause everyone knows each other in neighborhoods and finding areas aren’t that hard cause everything is right next to each other and finding jobs aren’t hard cause you can just see what your interest are and start applying
Very good city for settling down, especially for young families. They are a lot of things to do. if you like hiking, you're surrounded by tons of mountains. i particularly like the hiking trail in phoenix downtown-ish. Westgate is nice little shopping area. Youth are 30 minutes away from Scottsadale. If you want a weekend gateaway, you can always travel to flagstaff for snow, two hours away.
Great for families with young children. The schools are well staffed with caring teachers and great programs. Well funded schools. Professional jobs are not in high supply and most have to commute long distances to go to work. There is no night life for young adults. Housing is very expensive in this up and coming area and most areas do not offer affordable housing like apartments. Peoria is a very conservative area and people are not afraid to fly their flags to prove their conservative. Not a diverse area. Very little connections to any other community but the white community. Shopping in the area is going down hill with the only local mall losing stores. Very little for young teens to do so there is a high prevalence of alcohol in young teens. Older generations capitalize the vote in peoria because it is so closely located to 55 plus communities. I would only recommend this area for older generation adults with children who need to go to well funded schools.
