Peoria, IL: The City of Beauty in October

By 5:36 PM , , , , , , , , ,

I had to visit Peoria, IL for business in October and thankfully got to bring my sweet husband with me. Although there isn't much in Peoria (it is about a 3.5 hour drive from Chicago) I did learn that:

1) It is the home of Caterpilllar which my hubby was quite excited about.
2) It has the one of the prettiest roads in all the world ("the prettiest" according to President Roosevelt) called Grand View Drive.

Take home point: If you ever visit Peoria make sure it is during October and make sure to check out the gorgeous scenery on Grand View Drive.

So without further ado...Here are my gorgeous pictures from Peoria.

 Yes I took this...unbelievable I know...

 There we are...just soaking up God's Creation

 Home of Caterpillar

Ain't nothing but cornfields

And there were some of the prettiest houses ever on Grand View Drive:

Love this one! So much ominous I'm not sure what to do.
