Grand View Drive is a 2.52 mile meandering pleasure driveway constructed in 1903. The “world’s most beautiful drive,” as President Theodore Roosevelt referred to it in a visit to Peoria in 1910, offers visitors numerous panoramic scenic views of the Illinois River Valley and the chance to view many historic and remarkable homes lining it. The drive is especially beautiful in autumn, with the ever-changing colors of fall leaves.

Grand View Drive is the only linear park on the National Historic Register.
