Insider’s Guide to Evansville

Like any other place, Evansville has its quirks. From the way we talk to the "sides" we're on, to our passion for history and the performing arts, here's the story behind some local points of interest.

There is no place quite like Evansville (we say that with fondness!), so let’s take a closer look at some of the traditions and traits that give the River City a shape and rhythm all its own. What makes the West Side seem like its own town? Why are we enamored with military history? Evansville Living answers those burning questions, and more.

Plus, discover instances when Evansville led the way in the state of Indiana and how to pronounce all those strange names on our schools, street signs, and parks. (Spoiler alert: Boeke, a road, is said “Bay-kee.”) If you’re looking for a place to take a selfie, head to Main Street for a perfect background. Step inside!
