I was born and raised there and hatedo it finally moved to a much better city. Unless you like drinking there is nothing else to do. There is one mall. The houses are all run down and shabby. Almost looks like it is full of trashy poor people. No good jobs. I would advise you to stay away.
coming from a bigger city at least, i can say this place is awful. nothing to do, very small, druggies everywhere, smells horrible, really just overall boring. would not recommend. i've been here for a few months and want to hang myself.
This city is an economical disaster.The inner city is run down,druggies run rampant.I was born and raised here and have watched 62 yr.s of deterioration.Job after job has left the area,which I got caught up in,went through several shutdowns.Mostly nothing but service industry now.It is hard for people to survive here anymore or have any hope of a good life,unless you are rich to begin with.There use to be a good zoo,outdoor theater,larger stadium,drive in theaters and lots of factory jobs.Now there are two main roads to get the hell out of here and travel over a hundred miles to do something. People don't have any good jobs or money to keep their homes in good repair,so it becomes more and more run down.I would say leave as fast as you can.
I was born and raised in Evansville. Overall, there isn't much to do here except go out to eat and gain weight. There use to be a lot of green spaces but now there hardly is. There were going to make the Old Robert Stadium Roberts Park but that hasn't happened yet. I wouldn't recommend this city to anybody unless you don't mind not having anything to do.
Having lived here at least two years this time and one year back in 2001. Coming from louisville i would not recommend living or visting. Yea there is ONE mall here on the east side that is all. They have very nasty tasting water the city stinks like sewer. Ya if you like to drink there is night clubs i guess to drink a way the fact that this place sucks. You have to stop just about every block red light. Oh by the way the have a so called loyd express way that even has red lights i mean come on who has an express way with red lights. Not any place I have been to any ways so i guess what i am saying this town sucks, and dirty. By the way they are the 8th worst place to live and work that has been a fact and published. So any one in Louisville no do not come here you will hate it go to any were but here trust me i am from Louisville and it is much much better place to live and work and drive
Having visited the city of Evansville, Indiana many times over the last thirty years, I must say I highly recommend this city for anyone who is looking for a fun weekend get-away. Located between Illinois and Kentucky on the Ohio River, Evansville offers a great number of things to do and attractions to see!
There are literally hundreds of stores with great shopping in Evansville, with the Eastland Mall home to many of them. There are plenty of specialty shops, as well. If eating is a main priority, then Evansville will fill the bill. There are so many great restaurants in Evansville it is hard to choose which one to try first.
Evansville offers a lively nightlife with plenty of bars, pubs and clubs. There is also a comedy club and the Casino Aztar for varied entertainment. The Casino Hotel offers fabulous rooms at reasonable prices and is only a short distance from attractions like the Museum of Art, History and Science as well as the Mesker Park Zoo.
A great place for anyone to visit and probably an even better place to live, Evansville offers something for families, singles or couples. Treat yourself and put it at top of the list for future places to enjoy.
