Best of Evansville Guide

Print this guide 
Situated on a gentle bend of the Ohio River at the hub between Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, Evansville is a sizable metropolis with small town friendliness. There is something for everyone to discover, whether it is a chance encounter with Lady Luck on the riverboat Casino Aztar, a brisk hike along the Riverfront promenade, a step into history at Angel Mounds State Historic Site, fun with the family at Kid's Kingdom or an escape to verdant Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage.
