Overall Guide : The Victory Theatre is renowned for hosting numerous performances throughout the year, including classical performances, pop music performances and a variety of other concerts. Mesker Amphitheatre has a capacity of 8,500 and is worth a visit. The annual West Side Nut... more Club Fall Festival is held in October and draws a huge crowd from all over the world with the major attraction being the food which includes elephant ears, corn dogs, grasshoppers covered with chocolate and brain sandwiches. The Angel Mound State Historic Site, Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science and the Reitz Home Museum are some of the great places for those interested in history. Burdett Park and the Musker Park Zoo and Botanic Park offer a lot for recreation. The first ever riverboat casino in Indiana, the Casino Atzar, consisting of a huge casino, a big hotel, shops, restaurants and so forth, should be visited at least once.
