Stay at our Evansville, Indiana, hotels to explore the prehistoric native earthworks at Angel Mounds, spot jaguars among the trees at the Mesker Zoo and tempt lady luck at the floating Casino Aztar.
Families visiting our hotels in Evansville can head out with the kids to Mesker Park Zoo for a trek through the Amazon. Wander among palm trees and creeping vines to see colorful tropical birds and playful monkeys. The imaginative hands-on science exhibits at the Koch Family Children’s Museum of Evansville make learning about the laws of physics and engineering fun. Deconstruct a computer or solve a tricky building-blocks puzzle before catching a kid-friendly music performance on the museum stage. Our hotels in Evansville are also a short drive from the Angel Mounds State Historic Site, where the remains of a centuries-old Mississippian Indian town lie among grassy open fields.
Stroll the pathway along the Ohio River downtown for views of Kentucky on the distant shore. Then browse the art galleries, boutiques and antique stores along Main Street. Our Evansville hotels are close to the cluster of shops and affordable restaurants along Franklin Street on the city’s Westside. Sample old-world German classics—such as bratwurst and sauerbraten—at Gerst Haus on Franklin Street, the heart of the city’s German community. Try your luck at the roulette wheel or poker table at Casino Aztar, in a riverboat docked downtown.
Book our Holiday Inn® Evansville hotels to enjoy the year-round pleasures of this friendly Midwestern city. Come in July for spectacular fireworks over the Ohio River, or in October, when culinary adventurers sample pickle slushies and fried “brain” sandwiches at the nation’s second-largest annual street party, the Nut Club Fall Festival.
