ExplorePeoria.com went live August 15, 2006 and has grown and evolved by leaps and bounds over the first seven years of its existence. Owned and managed by Amy Blain, a Peoria native, ExplorePeoria.com offers a wide variety of information to residents & visitors alike.
A resident of Peoria all her life and of the Peoria historic area for over 20 years, Blain is happy to have been able to build a business around her hometown. It's a rare opportunity to be able to help many local non-profit groups and charities get the word out about their events & fundraising efforts which are an important part of the fabric of this community.
