Jobs in Peoria, Arizona, United States

Peoria is the sixth largest city of Arizona and a sprawling suburb of the capital city of Phoenix. Peoria spreads across two counties – Maricopa and Yavapai. The earliest inhabitants of Peoria are New World settlers from Peoria, Illinois and this is how the city got its name. Peoria developed into a modern residential suburb by the mid-1900s, when rapid post-war infrastructure development turned it into a preferred housing locality for the capital city. Starting with just around 2,000 inhabitants in 1954, Peoria has grown rapidly over the decades and now houses over 160,000 residents.

Peoria is a well-planned city that boasts of some of the best public amenities in the region. The city enjoys a low crime rate and excellent housing options. In 2017, the finance portal WalletHub.com ranked Peoria as the Ninth Least Stressed City in America. The local community in Peoria is family-friendly and nature loving. The city provides its residents and visitors with a multitude of recreational and leisure facilities. Yoga classes, camping locations, hiking and biking facilities, quaint picnic spots and wildlife viewing sites proliferate the city.

Lake Pleasant is one of the most important tourist locations in the entire region and offers exciting facilities like fishing, snorkelling, kayaking and boat rides. The Peoria Main Library has a unique Adult Coloring Club that is a popular recreational destination for both residents and tourists. Peoria boasts of two premier theatres, the Arizona Broadway Theatre and the Center for the Performing Arts.

Peoria connects to Phoenix and its other suburbs via Arizona State Route 101, or Loop 101. Peoria does not have its own airport; however, the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is located only 20 miles away from the city.
