With one of the top rated school districts in the state, it's easy to understand why so many young families are flocking to Peoria. Local news about the city, schools and area happenings are especially important to this fast-changing community.
Excellent recreational amenities, a thriving business community and home to the Peoria Sports Complex (the spring home to the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners) all combine to make Peoria attractive to year-round citizens and visiting tourists.
The Peoria Independent has been serving the city since 1999. A weekly newspaper, the Independent is home-delivered each week to 15,000 homes in the northern portion of the city.
