Evansville's own Lilly King came in first place by almost .25 secs in her first Olympic appearance - the heats that determine who advances to the semifinals - and she did it from the lane right next to 2012's 100m Breaststroke Olympic gold winner!
Yesterday I participated in the Evansville Die-In Protest over at Haynie's Corner were we laid on the ground in silence for 16 minutes but I guess the organizers and other participants didn't take into account the concrete in the summertime get REAL HOT...
I recently met some people who inspired me to camp more. Then I watched Wild starring Reese Witherspoon and though she had a whole big set of problems that I don't have, the thought of being closer to nature inspired me to introduce my daughter to camping. So, first thing's first - research. Here are some local spots I found that are perfect for the novice or advanced camper.
One of the biggest gripes people from Evansville have is that there's nothing to do. As a native myself, I've certainly said that a time or ten. Maybe it's because we're too "inside the box." Meaning we can't step back and see what our city has to offer because we're too close. We're here every day, so the attractions we have are just another part of the landscape, like any random house on the street. Perhaps we should look at it from an outsider's perspective. That's why I went to TripAdvisor.com to see what their users consider to be the best things to do whenever they're in town.
There are nine cemeteries located within Vanderburgh County where thousands of former residents have been laid to rest since Evansville officially became a city in March of 1812. Among those dearly departed lay a few notable individuals who made a name for themselves in the worlds of politics, business, and sports.
Whether you're looking for a whole new look, or a simple trim, there's no shortage of places in Evansville to get your hair did. But, you don't want to let just anyone with a pair of scissors near that beautiful hair of yours. You want someone who knows what they're doing; and according to Yelp! users, these are the ten best in town.
