There’s a reason Indiana is called the Crossroads of America! Located within three hours of Louisville, St. Louis, Nashville and Indianapolis, the Home2 Suites by Hilton Evansville is in the center point of the Midwest. Evansville offers small town culture with big city features, including the Evansville Regional Airport, which has frequent daily flights to major cities across the U.S.

This summer, Evansville is celebrating freedom with a bang! Fireworks on the Ohio, the city’s waterfront Independence Day celebration on the Ohio River, returns this Fourth of July after a 2020 hiatus. An annual favorite for locals and visitors, the event is free for spectators and features food trucks, vendors and Evansville’s largest public fireworks display.

Watch the show, then head home to the newly built, extended stay Home2 Suites by Hilton Evansville. Each suite is equipped with a sleeper sofa (even queen studio rooms can accommodate four people!) and its own full kitchenette. Don’t feel like staying in? Join us in the morning for a complimentary breakfast or, in the evening, blaze up the grill and firepit at the outdoor patio. The spacious fitness center is a must-have for long-term guests — hit the indoor pool to cool off after a workout!

There’s no shortage of things to do in Evansville, which has 13 neighborhoods on the National Register of Historic Places. Head to the Riverside Historic District to visit the Reitz Home Museum, one of the country’s finest examples of French Second Empire architecture. Get lost in the slots at the downtown Tropicana Casino (blackjack was invented in Evansville!) — or get lost in the shops at the Eastland Mall.

Take the little ones to the Children’s Museum of Evansville or the Mesker Park Zoo and Botanic Garden. Drop by Willard Library, the oldest operating library in the state, and try to glimpse its resident ghost, the Grey Lady!

In town for business? Evansville is home to the headquarters of Mead Johnson, Accuride, Berry Global, Escalade, Shoe Carnival, OneMain Financial and Old National Bank. Thirty minutes away, a Toyota manufacturing and assembly plant builds more than 400,000 Sequoia and Highlander SUVs every year.

The hotel is located directly across Interstate 69 from the Deaconess Gateway Medical Center, an expansive 1.5-million-square-foot medical campus with amazing facilities including a heart hospital, women’s hospital and surgical center. Deaconess Midtown Medical Center and Ascension St. Vincent hospitals are also nearby in the medical hub of southwest Indiana.
