Evansville, Indiana Hotels and Travel Guide
The largest city in southern Indiana, Evansville is situated on a horseshoe bend of the Ohio River and is aptly referred to as “River City.” If you’re looking for Evansville, Indiana, hotels, Extended Stay Hotels has a great place to stay at a great price.
Evansville has a broad and diverse economic base, attracting such corporate headquarters as Accuride, Atlas Van Lines, Berry Plastics, and Old National Bank. Major manufacturing operations in and around the city include Whirlpool, Toyota, and AK Steel plants.
Evansville’s place in history as part of the Midwest’s manufacturing complex was secured when the city played its role in assuring the success of the D-Day Invasion during World War II. The Evansville waterfront became a production yard for LSTs (Landing Ship Tanks). These floating workhouses played a major part in the Allied victory in Europe. Tours are conducted daily on one of the few remaining LSTs.
Two fine institutions of higher education call Evansville home today. These are the University of Evansville, a small, private liberal arts school with 3,000 students, and the larger University of Southern Indiana, which boasts over 10,000 students. The universities are four and thirteen miles respectively from the Studio Plus Deluxe Studios Evansville – East hotel.
Golfers who enjoy taking in nature while teeing off should take the four mile trip to the Wesselman Woods area. There they will find the 200 acre Nature Preserve, the Wesselman Park par-3 golf course, and the 9-hole, par 36 McDonald Golf Course.
For those who favor indoor activities, Casino Aztar, the first riverboat casino in the state of Indiana, is a popular attraction. And adjacent to the Wesselman Woods area is Robert Stadium, a 12,500 seat concert hall and sporting event venue that hosts nationally known performers.
For a comfortable and convenient Evansville hotel, the Studio Plus Deluxe Studios Evansville – East location is an ideal choice.
