Things to Do

The Perfect Home Base Away From Home

Pekin is great for exploring the heart of Illinois. Not only are there many sites to explore right here in town, but we’re also just across the river from Peoria. That means area attractions like the Peoria Civic Center, Dozer Park, the Peoria Riverfront Museum, the Peoria Zoo, Corn Stock Theatre, the Jukebox Comedy Club, and Wildlife Prairie Park are all within a 20-minute drive.

Don’t forget to load up on our local activities, too! Pop into an art class. Cool off at DragonLand Water Park. Test your skills on one of six football-sized paintball courses. Or tap into your competitive side with a game of tennis, baseball, bowling, soccer, and more. Kids to adults, there’s fun for everyone!
