Relocating to Evansville...

My husband and I are moving to the area in the fall. We are mid twenties. Any suggestions on where to live? This is a short term move so we will be renting. Thank you.

Hello and welcome to Evansville.

I'm sure your relocation company will help you with finding a rental. Depends on which side of town you will be working on. Do you have children that will be in school?

No, we are a newly married couple in our mid 20's.

I would avoid most areas between Hwy. 41 and Pigeon Creek south of Hwy. 66. There are some nice properties downtown, but that area can be spotty (with nice areas just one or two blocks from blighted areas and some in the middle of sketchy neighborhoods).

Anything you look at, just go on Google Earth to get a feel for the street and its neighborhood.

You might want to look for whatever is closest to where your spouse works, though, as far as west side vs. east side of town. Both have shopping and entertainment stuff, and nice parks/nature areas. Our event venues are all downtown, and downtown does offer great greenway amenities, but there's not a lot going on there after dark (downtown businesses close up early).

Hope this helps, and that you enjoy your stay here!

Live on the outskirts of Evansville.

Chandler girl, I think all of Evansville has some shady spots and the DOWNTOWN life is actually fairly thriving.

I would look at the apartments and rental homes in Newburgh.

We have friends who reside in Newburgh as well. They seem to love the closeness to Evansville without all the issues of the city. The commute is short and manageable.

Um, really folks. This thread is getting close to 2 years old. My guess is that the OP now knows Evansville well enough to figure out where to live and, in fact, has probably settled down, maybe bought a house, had a kid (or two) and . . . .
