The city may be unknown to many, but it is expounding with adventure and fun!

Always something to do…

            No matter what time of year, there is always something to keep you busy in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  During the summer, you can attend our annual Three Rivers Festival-watch the parade, go to the events, and enjoy the fireworks.  When the leaves start to change, take the family to the Johnny Appleseed Festival for a day full of excitement.  Winter brings lots of laughs with ice skating at Headwaters Park, the downtown display of lights, and horse drawn carriage rides.  And spring cannot be forgotten with the butterflies arriving at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory!

Fun for everyone…

            Whether you are five or eighty-five, Fort Wayne has something for you.  Everyone is sure to enjoy the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo-ranking as one of the top ten zoos in the nation.  Come by to feed the giraffes or say "hello" to Bill the lion!  Also stop by Science Central and enjoy lots of hands on interactive educational fun for the whole family.  You can defy gravity or even have a chance to be the weatherman!  And don't worry about transportation.  Fort Wayne's Citilink Bus or Trolley will take you where you need to go!

Rain or shine…

            The weather won't stop you from having fun in our city.  If rain comes our way, Fort Wayne offers a wide variety of indoor activities such as Glenbrook Shopping Mall, The Fort Wayne Museum of Art, and The Embassy Theater.  Oh, and you can't forget our brand new indoor trampoline park-SkyZone.  However, for sunny days, you can explore on over 65 miles of hiking, biking, and even kayaking trails Fort Wayne has to offer.  You can also take the family to a local Fort Wayne Komet's hockey game or Tincap's baseball game.  After the game, cool off in one of Fort Wayne's many public pools or splash pads!  Learn about our city's heritage by visiting the Historic Old Fort-a historic 1815 replica.

Plenty of Places to Dine…

            Who could forget-food!  Fort Wayne has a restaurant to satisfy every taste bud.  If you are in a hurry and want a quick bite to eat, stop by Power's Hamburgers or Coney Island.  Or if you have a little more time, try out Takaoka of Japan where you can enjoy authentic  Japanese cuisine prepared right in front of you.  You could also visit Hall's Triangle Park and get a delicious meal, spend an evening by the river, and feed the swans!

So come and stay a while in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  I guarantee, it will be worth the stop; and once you visit, you're sure to come back!
