City of Pekin, IL


Places to Live

lakehouseIf you’re looking for the best value, look to Pekin! Our taxes are among the lowest in the Peoria area and we offer a variety of existing homes and new developments near parks, lakes, golf courses and more.

If you love the water, select a home on one of our many private lakes. If you enjoy wooded privacy, choose a home in one of our more established neighborhoods.  If you’re a history buff, take a walk down one of Pekin’s historical streets lined with stately, turn-of-the-century style homes. If you're a golfer, tee off from your backyard that is on or near Lick Creek Golf Course, Pekin Country Club or Sunset Hills Golf Club. Plus, many of our neighborhoods offer easy, safe walking access to shopping, recreation and parks.
