There's plenty to do in the heart of Illinois, so let us help you explore this great city.
See How It's Built at the Caterpillar Visitors Center
For the perfect introduction to Peoria, we highly recommend stopping by the Caterpillar Visitor Center. Yes, it's that Caterpillar - the one known for all of the big heavy machinery, much of which was responsible for building this city. Seeing how these machines are manufactured and how they operate is a remarkable experience for both the young and old passengers on your Shofur bus. You'll be pleasantly surprised to find that it's not all about big machinery at the Caterpillar Visitor Center - visitors can expect a full education on soil mechanics, engineering, and the history of these great building machines.
Catch a Game at Dozer Park
In keeping with the industrial spirit of the Caterpillar Visitor's Center, get a taste of Illinois' other favorite pastime at Dozer Park - which has been described by visitors as "Baseball Heaven" and was named after Caterpillar's heavy machinery. Conveniently located in Central Peoria and with plenty of bus parking, this is the premiere destination in the city to catch a ball game. Dozer Park is of course the home of the Chiefs, and you may also be able to catch a St. Louis Caridnals game here as well. Open since 2002, it's considered one of the best stadiums in the state.
With clean and well kept stands fully staffed by plenty of food vendors, you'll be able to enjoy a baseball game the way it was meant to be enjoyed: with a hot dog or a bag of peanuts. Look out for some truly stunning fireworks at night - this is sure to please any ball fan on your bus.
See Real Giants at the Giant Oak Park
Just off of Main Street and near Bradley University, you'll find one of the most stunning parks in the state: Giant Oak Park. This park is appropriately named because of the many stunning oak trees that dot its well maintained grounds - and they are absolutely huge. There's one particularly old tree to see - the one for which the park was named - which has branches that seem endless as they dip onto the grass. This is sure to delight anyone who can appreciate nature in the heart of the city. If you or any of your travel companions like taking a nice stroll through the shade of old (dare we say ancient) trees, this is the place to do it - and there's plenty of convenient bus parking as well.
Historical Attractions and Landmarks
This city is the perfect destination for a weekend historical tour - and there's no better way to transport yourself and all of your companions than on one of Shofur's delightfully comfortable and spacious charter buses. We recommend you start at the John C. Flanagan House Museum, which is a remarkably well maintained structure given its age - it was originally erected in 1837 and is the oldest building in the city. Tours are available daily - you can also reserve the house to host an elegant dinner or meeting.
Of course, no historical tour of the city (or Illinois as a whole for that matter) would be complete without a trip down Grandview Drive. It's a two and a half mile road, but you won't want to drive down it without stopping your bus at least once or twice to enjoy the several scenic parks, viewing areas, and historical homes along the way. It's such a well known area that it was even called the "world's most beautiful drive" by President Theodore Roosevelt - now that's a great place to drive your bus.
