A recent renaissance in the heart of our city offers new things to see and do around every corner. The 241-room DoubleTree Evansville Convention Hotel connects via skywalk to The Old National Events Plaza with 280,000 square feet of meeting space and to The Ford Center arena with entertainment and concerts by top performers from around the country as well as sporting events. Locally owned restaurants, bars, antique stores, galleries and unique shops line Main Street – some are long-time establishments like Angelo’s Italian Restaurant and some are in long-time establishments like BRU Burger in our restored vintage Greyhound bus staion. Classes begin in 2018 in the new IU Medical School and Health Science Research Center which will bring in thousands of students and faculty to downtown.
