Tips for Travelers to Evansville, Indiana and Surrounding Areas

If you’re a “have gun will travel” kinda guy or gal like we are, I thought it might be good to list a few ideas to help out. The hotels are near the major highway leading to the Range, the Lloyd Expressway. There are several restaurants, bars and an Imax theater in the area. Evansville has a Riverboat Casino called the Tropicana and a few other odds and ends. I’m listing a few below so if you think you might stay awhile, have fun.
