The hotel had offered to get us a tour guide, but we wanted to explore independently
When mom retired from her job, I promised her we would travel the country together. She always had the dream of making a bucket list. So, we came up with a plan last year to see some fantastic places. Our tour of the country would start with the city of Evansville in Indiana. Mom had never been there, but she knew some of our ancestors had called this area home before migrating north. It was such a special trip, and it made sense to start at a place we called home long ago. I got some time off work, and we booked our flights to Evansville during the summer. Mom booked a lovely hotel online, and we got a cab to this location from the airport. It was a charming boutique hotel with five-star services. I also noticed its AC system was top-notch, which was essential to us. The weather in Evansville proved to be quite something since it was already quite hot at the start of summer. We got settled in the hotel and had some time to relax before we began exploring the city. Mom had bought a map of the area plus a tourist guide to check out. There were plenty of incredible places we would see during the two-week tour of this fantastic city. The following morning, we got ready and went to have breakfast. The hotel had offered to get us a tour guide, but we wanted to explore independently. We got the tour guide map out and began seeking our first location. This was the old courthouse which was a fantastic building that told plenty of stories about the history of Indiana.
