    Casino Aztar

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Casino Aztar was pretty nice since it is near the river. However, the slot do not pay out well. I ended up losing money, I won’t say how much. They do have some good live entertainment at times. Corky's BBQ has some yummy BBQ. I loved eating the full rack of ribs with the BBQ rub:)

  • Fall Festival

    by rianp Written Aug 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first full week of every October, the city finally comes alive. Over 100 food vendors show up along West Franklin much to the joy of the crowds. 85 years strong, and still going.

    It allows people to actually be friendly for a while and enjoy some good, if not odd local flavors.

    You can pick up everything from a apple dumpling to a brain sandwich, all within a couple blocks.

    Said to be the largest street festival in America next to Mardi Gras, and Indiana has been Hurricane free for billions of years.

    There are some rides for the kids and young at heart. Most of us are usually too full to partake in these upside down activities.

  • LST 325

    Go down towards the Riverfront and see the LST WWII container ship. Evansville was a large ship builder during WWII and we finally get to show off some of that heritage in a floating museum.

    The dock surrounding it might not be the most appealing tourist attraction, but it's the history you're here for.

  • Bosse Field

    If you are a fan of old baseball stadiums you have to make an effort to catch a game at Bosse Field. The independent league Evansville Otters currently play there. One of the oldest stadiums in America and a WPA architectural gem. The Otters organization does things right and any sports fan would have an enjoyable evening at Bosse.

  • Zoo with pride

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mesker Park Zoo is a smaller zoo but one that you can actually appreciate in one whole day. They have a variety of animals that fulfill the kids' need to see wildlife. They also have a tram and paddleboats.
    They have worked very hard on the area to improve it and make it visually appealing in many ways.

    Nightlife in Evansville

    by Brooke226 Written May 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I recently turned 21 and am enjoying the nightlife here in Evansville very much! There are fun places to go, such as...The Little Cheers, Fast Eddy's (a new favorite), Fox and Hound, and a cool place to go for dinner is Applebees, TGIFridays, and Hacienda.
    Joey's, a karaoke, hole0in the wall bar, is a BLAST! You can dance with the crowd while you sing!

    Four Freedoms Monument

    by sambarnett Updated Apr 10, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Unveiled on the USA's bicentennial, these four Ionic columns, designed by Rupert Condict and created with parts salvaged from an old railway station, the Four Freedoms Monument is based off a speech given by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1941. Represented are the freedom of speech and religion and the freedom from fear and oppression. Alas, that dreaded revisionism has struck again. Roosevelt's original speech called for freedom from want.
       Surrounding the columns are 50 slabs, commemorating the 50 states in the Union.
