North Peoria Real Estate

    North Peoria snakes between northern Glendale and Surprise in the Northwest Valley. The area has seen enormous growth in the past few years as young families flock to the excellent schools, low crime rates and low cost of living. Kid-friendly restaurants and entertainment options are opening every day.

    The most popular restaurants in North Peoria balance great food with affordable prices and a family-friendly atmosphere. Residents love the classic yet delicious American food at The Haymaker Restaurant Co. A couple from the Midwest opened Cheezheadz, many families’ favorite pizza joint that also serves cheese curds and the Hodag sandwich, in 2012 and decorated like the Packers fans they are. The Hawaiian plate lunch at Leo’s Island BBQ in the Arrowhead shopping district is also a local favorite.

    There is also an abundance of family-friendly fun to be had in North Peoria. The Peoria Sports Complex, home of a main baseball stadium and twelve practice fields, hosts Major League Baseball’s Spring Training for San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners. Local leagues play there during the offseason. Most elementary school students take at least one trip to the Challenger Space Station, a great place to spend the rare rainy day (or a sunny one, Peoria has plenty!).

    The beautiful weather most of the year makes outdoor recreation popular in North Peoria. Several mountain preserves offer convenient access to hiking trails, and Thunderbird Mountain in North Glendale is just a short drive away for those looking for longer trails. Lake Pleasant is along the northern border of Peoria, and offers camping, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, picnicking, and wildlife viewing. Trinity Golf Club at Vistancia is home to the only golf course in Arizona to receive Golf Digest’s prestigious five star designation (there are only 23 such courses in the country). There are also plenty of great local parks to enjoy the beautiful weather, and the New River Trail is perfect for a jog or a bike ride.
