I didn’t REALLY get lost, however when I know I’m going to RC Outfitters, I make sure I go without my husband and daughters because – I’ll be while. It’s where I have always bought my running shoes, majority of my running gear, and other odds and ends one may need. Although the back wall is lined with shoes, it;s so much more!
You are ALWAYS greeted by a friendly associate who directs you to who can help. It’s not only for those who love running. They offer many different lines of attire for yoga and other outdoor activities.
They support our community with races and training programs, making their best to help improve the lives of others.
We have watched it grow from a tiny store on Main/Sheridan to their 2nd home in The Heights and now The Warehouse District in Downtown Peoria.
Make RC Oufitters a destination. You will be glad you did.
I’m not much of a golfer however, my husband is, we have friends who are as well as many others who live in the tri-county area. Between the Peoria Park District golf courses throughout the city, private club courses like Mt. Hawley or Country Club of Peoria, golf courses way out in country – Arrowhead, or even a premiere golf course in a neighborhood like Weaver Ridge, we offer something for everyone!
Here’s a few to view!
Did you know there is a trail that goes through Downtown Peoria up through Peoria Heights then to North Peoria, Dunlap, Princeville, and THEN to Rock Island??? Paved, rocky, over the bridge, through a tunnel….The paved Kellar Trail hooks into the Rock Island Trail which can take you northwest to Rock Island. Cross over the walking bridge and take a break to Kellar Station on Knoxville and grab a coffee at CXT or walk on over Cyd’s in the Park. Take your time and enjoy!
Peoria has so much to offer. Places to eat, shop, stay, enjoy……
The Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau is a fantastic resource for what you are looking for!!!
Bradley University has one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever visited. Maybe I’m a little biased as it was why I came to Peoria…The history of this school and surroundings has such importance. it is shared by this staff and students, the alumni, and of course, the community. Home to the Bradley Braves, amazing musical and art talent, state of the art engineering, communications, and business schools….take a tour when you visit!
One of the highlights of a community tour we love to give to out of town clients, is the unsuspected turn off Prospect to Grandview Drive. Coined “The World’s Most Beautiful Drive” by Teddy Roosevelt, this 3 mile stretch of hills and turns has the most gorgeous views of the river and bluff you have ever seen. Perfect for running, walking, biking….many come to use this scenic background as the backdrop for wedding, family, senior photos….it’s close to Downtown Peoria Heights so you can make a day of it!
For those of you who do not know, I love running. I was training and planning to run the NYC Marathon this weekend before Covid hit. Instead of running through the 5 Burroughs of New York City and crossing a finish line in front of the iconic Central Park, I ran throughout Peoria (with help from friends on the route) and finished in the common area/neighborhood park where I live.
It was truly gratifying and beautiful (and yes, tiring) to run 26.2 miles through Peoria.
I would do it again.
