Evansville lies along the banks of the Ohio River as it snakes its way along the Indiana-Kentucky border. You can admire the gently flowing water as you stroll the city’s riverfront walkway, located just west of downtown. This is also where you’ll find some of the best attractions in town, including the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science and the Tropicana Evansville Casino, which has a gaming floor is stocked with penny slots and more than 40 table games. A bit further down the river is the USS LST Ship Memorial. Take a tour of its decks and galleys that date back to WWII.
