Evansville has many positive aspects to it, such as the many shopping centers and countless family-run stores and restaurants. Traffic when there is little construction tends to move well, but lately traffic has been stopped up. Many little neighborhoods that are safe as well!

Good city for rising kids. Light traffic, nice people. A lot of good churches. Christian preschool, kindergartens, schools. Everything close. My neighborhood is safe. Like this city!
I've lived here all my live, so evansville has a special place in my heart! If there was anything to improve, it would be the quality of the downtown area regarding restaurants, shopping, and living.
