What Bert Has To Say About Evansville Metro Area

Evansville is located in the far southwest portion of the state. This Ohio River port is the commercial and cultural hub of southwest Indiana and the nearby regions of Illinois and Kentucky. Downtown is modern and attractive with historic areas and a pedestrian mall near the waterfront. Most growth is spreading northeast along the I-164 connector to the east-west I-64. Evansville is one of the larger cities not to be directly served by an east-west or north-south interstate, with some good and some bad consequences.
