Evansville is one of the largest cities in the state of Indiana after Fort Wayne and Indianapolis.
- It is easily the largest city in the southern part of Indiana.
Evansville is located on the Ohio River. It is one of the reasons why it is often referred to as the river city. Evansville is home to the state’s very first casino. My friends and I decided to go to the casino last fall. We live several hours away from Evansville, but my friends and I decided to spend the weekend in the city. I got a hotel room at one of the local chain places. The room had a view of the river. It wasn’t a particularly great view, but it was better than a view of the street and the buildings. Going to Evansville in the fall was a great idea, because we got to see a lot of different colors on the trees. Many of the trees were already changing to orange, red, yellow, and green colors and they were vibrant and full of life. The first night we spent in Evansville, I was at the casino until it closed. I lost a couple hundred dollars, but I had a lot of fun playing poker. I slept hard that night, and I’m sure the 10 beers helped my slumber. It was pretty cold in the hotel room, but I had the heater on 70 degrees. I only had to sleep with a light sheet, because the temperatures were so warm and comfortable. My friends and I enjoyed two nights in Evansville and then we had to go back home to our boring life in northern Indiana.
