Although these apartments are highly rated with good management, this is a great book to pick up. You never know when you'll need legal advice when renting. Apartment management can always change.

Why Move to Evansville?

Facts about Evansville, Indiana

I was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana and I love it. It's a medium sized metropolitan area with several beautiful small towns nearby. The average rent for a 1 bedroom is approximately $430. There are 3 colleges in Evansville - University of Evansville (private school - $20K per year), University of Southern Indiana (public 4 year college - $5K per year), and Ivy Tech Community College (public 2 year college and technical school - $3K per year).

The average income is approximately $38,000. The primary job fields in Evansville are manufacturing, education (there are 30 public schools in Evansville), health care (there are 3 hospitals) and banking. There are excellent public schools in the area, several Christian and Catholic private schools, and several alternative schools. The alternative schools include low income charter schools, technical high schools (for students looking to pursue a technical career after high school), online home schooling, and several schools for the more gifted students.

There are approximately 100 churches in the area, probably just as many bars, many restaurants, 3 Walmarts, 2 Targets, and at least a dozen grocery stores. Evansville has a lot of farmers that do CSAs (community supported agriculture) so if you enjoy fresh produce, you can get it at a great discount. Evansville also has a farmers market that runs May through September as well as a local market featuring food and other products made by producers within 100 miles of Evansville.

Evansville has a great public bus system that can take you clear across town for $1. I spent the better part of my youth riding the bus to and from the mall, movies, bowling, etc. Traffic is not too bad. Evansville has a small airport that flies to several large hubs. Evansville is in a great area for travel, especially weekend trips. Some sample driving times: 2 hours to Louisville, 3 hours to St. Louis, 3 hours to Nashville, 4 hours to Indianapolis and 6 hours to Chicago.

Evansville has the 2nd largest street festival in the United States (after Mardi Gras). It's called the "West Side Nut Club Fall Festival". It occurs the first full week in October and basically everyone flocks to the west side and eats greasy food, plays carnival games and rides crazy rides. Evansville also has 2 small water parks, lots of public swimming pools and many public parks. There is a theme park about 45 minutes from Evansville called Holiday World. It is very affordable (approx $40 per ticket) and includes free drinks, sunscreen and parking. There are 3 roller coasters, lots of kids rides, many family rides, many shows and a large waterpark.

What Do YOU Think is Evansville's Best Apartment Complex?

      Hi Thanks for putting all info together, it is very helpful, What is your opinion about Leisure Living and Hickory Lake apartments?

      @anonymous: Yes, I did enjoy living there. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, the neighbors are mostly older folks, and the lake is very pretty and relaxing. They don't advertise much because they are often full to capacity. When I moved out, the 1 bedrooms were $420/month but that may have changed. The 2 bedrooms were around $600 and the 3 bedrooms were around $800. I am not sure whether these have changed so you will definitely want to give them a call for current prices.

      @anonymous: I think it's a little bit overpriced. If you're willing to spend that much, I think you would be better served by Kenzi Estates. They offer a bit more as far as amenities go, the apartments are much larger, and they are in a quiet north side neighborhood. If you have to stay on the east side, I would suggest Lakeshore Apartments or Ashley Pointe.

      I am working on updating this page because some of the prices and details are outdated. I should have it updated in the next week or so. :)

      Westwood Apartments on the west side would also make a good choice, very affordable just $395 a month with free cable/internet.

      @BorednBroke: I noticed that a lot of my friends were having bad luck with apartments and wanted to find out why. I researched and found out that there's a lot of hype around certain apartment complexes but they simply fail to deliver. They're overpriced with terrible management and subpar maintenance crews. I wanted to help point out the better apartments in Evansville so people don't follow the hype and end up disappointed.

      I decided to write the lens as a service to both fellow Evansville natives and future Evansville residents.

      Hmmm, came across your lens and was interested to see that there is such a lens. Is Evansville a big apartment market? Just wondering what made you decide to write a whole lens about apartments in your city. Good research and good pics.
