Make yourself at home in our hotels in Evansville, Indiana, built at a bend on the Ohio River. In no time you’ll be marveling at tarantulas in the jungle of Mesker Park Zoo or sampling bratwurst in the city’s German enclave on Franklin Street.
Stroll along downtown’s riverfront walkway, a short drive from our hotels in Evansville, to watch barges cruising down the Ohio River and Kentucky slumbering across the far shore. The river path takes you past the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science. The galleries here display celebrated works by American masters that include watercolors by Hopper and oil paintings by O’Keefe. Our Evansville hotels are near the Mesker Park Zoo, where a re-created Amazonian forest is home to slinking jaguars and big-beaked toucans. Explore Indiana’s prehistory at the Angel Mounds, a quick drive from town. The Mississippian Indians built a large settlement on the river here several centuries ago.
Our hotels in Evansville are a short drive from the city’s many affordable restaurants. Locals satisfy their cravings for bratwurst and sauerbraten at Gerst Haus on Franklin Street, in the heart of the city’s German community. Step out from our Evansville hotels to play the slots and poker tables at Aztar Casino, in a flashy riverboat docked downtown. Grab a pint of ale in one of the bars and clubs nearby or dance till dawn with the city’s high-energy scenesters.
