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!

Evansville IN is the third-largest city in Indiana. The city is pretty spread out with many restaurants in the city to check out for different dining experiences. There is a multitude of stores to shop in to find just what you are looking for. I am never disappointed when it comes to a day out with the girls for a lunch and shopping date. Plenty to keep you busy. When it comes to entertainment, I would love to see more attractions come to the town itself however holiday world is not too far from here. This theme park gives you a lot of fun in their attractions for a day trip. Other than the lack of entertainment in this city, overall the town is pretty great with wonderful views of the Ohio River closer to downtown. Wouldn't recommend a visit for vacation though.
Evansville is a pretty big town with a small city vibe. We have all the chaos and drama of a city, but the population and density of a normal large town. We have two small malls, all the restaurants and bars for a young adult's contents, and of course some museums and historical areas as well. It definitely makes it hard to want to move away from something I am so adjusted to, but also part of me wants to find something more quaint some days. You don't miss out on the new styles and flashy cars as we are pretty diverse when it comes to the lifestyles of everyone around the city. We have so many travellers passing through, but rarely staying too long. We have some local towns nearby that offer some unique features, so it keeps new faces coming and going.
