As we say hello to warmer days and the coming of spring, it's time to get reacquainted with the great outdoors. From long hikes to picnics in the park, here are three of Peoria's best outdoor destinations to celebrate the changing of the seasons.

New River Trail

If you’re on the hunt for an easy hike surrounded by natural beauty then New River Trail is for you. With a fully paved, 13.5-mile-long trail from Glendale to Peoria, you can enjoy a long, uninterrupted walk with plenty of spots to take a break or simply sit by the river. From leisurely strolls with your pup to the occasional morning jog, New River Trail is the perfect local destination when you want to put one foot in front of the other. 

Lake Pleasant Cruises

What’s better than sitting by the river and experiencing the scenic beauty of Lake Pleasant? Seeing it from aboard The Phoenix, Arizona's newest luxury cruise boat. Come aboard Lake Pleasant Cruises and enjoy a full-service bar, open-air top deck, spacious restrooms, and large viewing windows. If you’re a big information buff, the cruise guide teaches the passengers about the lake itself, Arizona history, and local wildlife. With everything from sunset Music Cruises to Brunch Cruises, Lake Pleasant Cruises have an option for every mood.
