Weekend Getaways

One of Evansville’s charms is its close proximity to major metropolitan areas across several states.

Within 250 miles of the River City are clusters of smaller locales boasting a wealth of attractions, history, natural wonders, and unique experiences — and perhaps fewer traffic jams than the region’s largest cities.

There are plenty of these towns to choose from, and Evansville Living writers recently visited a few. In each one, we encountered fun and adventure, excellent food, and too many new friends to count.

Here, explore Springfield, Illinois; Franklin, Tennessee; Bardstown and Bowling Green, Kentucky; and Jeffersonville and New Albany, Indiana, along with us.
