    Default Heading to Evansville, IN

    My wife has a conference in Evansville this weekend. The kids (14 and 13) and I will be there with her. Anyone have any good ideas about what to see or do for the day?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I actually had a similar challenge a little over a year ago - my wife was in a Wedding there and was left to figure out what to do for a day.

    We ended up doing a daytrip over to Louisville and saw the Slugger Factory and Museum. We'd also looked at going to Mammoth Caves. Both of those things are about a 2 hour drive away, however, and if you are just coming from Indy then it might make sense for you to wait for those for another day.

    A couple other things I did see while there were the USS LST Ship I also did a quick look through Audubon State Park just across the River in Kentucky.

    There are also a few museums in Evansville, or if you were looking for more amusement parks type fun, there is Holiday World a few miles away in Santa Claus, Indiana.

    Default sounds like a plan coming togther

    Perfect!

    Hanging out downtown and your idea's "A couple other things I did see while there were the USS LST Ship I also did a quick look through Audubon State Park just across the River in Kentucky." sounds like a plan coming togther.

    Thanks

    Default In Addition...

    ...to the places Michael listed, Lincoln State Park, about 10 miles east of town, offers canoe rentals. There are indoor and outdoor go-cart tracks in Owensboro, KY. Any of those should appeal to young teens.
