We just moved from Peoria. I grew up in Chillicothe (20 minutes North of Peoria), but moved away when I went to college. When my husband and I married we moved back to Peoria. The 61614 zip code is probably a good way to search. Finding decent rentals are hard to find. We relied on Craigslist and word of mouth. The schools in Peoria are notoriously horrible, which is why lots of families homeschool. There are lots of homeschool co-ops as well. We preferred to stay north of War Memorial and West of Knoxville, though there are some pockets that are desirable outside of that grid. Dunlap, Chillicothe and Morton are great school districts. Dunlap has better rental options and it's very close to shopping and food. I'll try to check back if you have more questions. Is Caterpillar relocating you?
