Moving to Peoria IL
- 0Aug 10, '12 by Jb101I will be relocating to Peoria Il for a job. I was wondering if anyone here might have any advice or suggestions on where to live (this will be my first place on my own)? I am looking to rent a place in a good, safe, and mostly quiet area and am looking to pay probably no more than $800 a month. I need a place asap so I need a place without waiting lists currently.
Does anyone have any apartment names or other places you recommend to look into?
- 0Aug 11, '12 by traumaRUs, MSN, APRN, CNS AdminYes - Dunlap is the best. If you are planning to work downtown at one of the two big hospitals: OSF or Methodist, it is a straight shot down Knoxville (when construction season is done that is - lol). Areas near these two hospitals are bad, don't live close to the hospitals. Other options include moving out aways towards Washington, IL (very nice area, some apartment living but mostly single family homes).
If you choose to stay closer, definitely move north (towards Dunlap) and look north of Rte 6...good luck. I live in Mapleton (about 15 miles south of Peoria) and work in multiple locations so if I can help PM me.
- 0Aug 11, '12 by Jb101Do either of you know some specific apartment complex names to look at? I found prairie lake and timberlane on a search but they have a very long wait list. I didn't know what others are good or if there were any that might not be found doing an Internet search? I plan to visit Peoria this coming week but was hoping to have a few complexes in mind to look at before I get there. Thanks for your suggestions. The Dunlap area definitely seemed the best area the one time I was there I didn't really check out places to live though since I didn't want to get my hopes up about a Job and them not get it.
