Peoria is a beautiful city in Maricopa and Yavapai counties in the state of Arizona. It is one of the major suburbs of Phoenix and is located just 13 miles from Phoenix in the southeast direction. Peoria is famous for Lake Pleasant Regional Park. This 23000-acre park is known for its marinas and is quite popular for boating, fishing, water skiing, kayaking, camping, and also scuba diving. Peoria is also home to some great restaurants. Here are some of my favorite restaurants in Peoria.
