Evansville isn't the most cultured place in the world, but if you know who to ask or where to look, you stumble upon some truly wonderful diamonds in the rough. Autumn is gorgeous here, I always find myself staring at the trees. Winter isn't too terribly severe, but we still get snow. Spring is something worth writing about. All the trees bloom flowers that are beautiful to look at and smell. Summer is...Summer. It's hot, but not unbearable. Truly a midwest city full of great locals with plenty of hospitality, and groovy little places to explore in your free time.

I never really considered myself a city girl before, but coming from Fort Worth, TX, a city with around a million people, to Evansville was kind of a wake up call. There isn't much to do here. I don't personally have a car so I can't get around that much anyway but...when the most exciting part of your week is a trip to Panera Bread and Barnes & Noble, I'd say that's pretty dull. Especially if that's as exciting as it can get.
The upside, however, is Fall Fest, which is an AWESOME street festival held downtown in I believe October. It's basically just three blocks lined both ways with kiosks selling everything from "traditional" German foods like fried bologna, to cake balls, to bread pudding, to fried mac n' cheese, to donut burgers. There are also some carnival rides and live musical preformances but the food is the best part.

When I first enrolled as a freshman I would have given the local atmosphere a C-. There is not much to do unless you are 21. But once you can legally drink, the downtown area of Evansville is a great place to go out with friends and sample some of the local bars.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
