There's something for everyone in Fort Wayne! We have museums, a zoo, giant malls, parks galore, statues, monuments, a historic fort, nightclubs, great restaurants, first class hotels, colleges, universities, excellent hospitals, low crime, historic districts, international airport, one of the best concert arenas in the country, and (if that's something you prefer) a few stripclubs. In fact Fort Wayne is said to have more churches and stripclubs per 100,000 people than any other city in the midwest! That's right, we like our people religious and our women nude! Er, maybe not. Anyway, go ahead and bring the family, except for those stripclubs.
Fondest memory: The only memory I had of Fort Wayne before I moved here was coming to Glenbrook mall a couple times a year to do some shopping at Indiana's largest mall, especially around Christmas.
Favorite thing: Not really a tip, but a bit of amusing trivia! If you're in Fort Wayne and stop at the Kohls Department store at NorthCrest Shopping Center (corner of Coliseum Blvd and Clinton), look up at the top right corner on the second floor of the Kohls building. You'll see a white colored area with windows that looks out of place. This is the part of the building that was torn off during the tornado that hit Fort Wayne Memorial weekend of 2001. The weak tornado also flipped several cars in this parking lot before hitting a few residential communities before it was gone. Just an interesting bit of trivia for ya!
The Botanical Conservatory is beautiful in the spring! They do a marvolous display of spring flowers!
Paula's Fish Place is a wonderful seafood restraunt. The food is magnificent but it's alittle pricey.
Fondest memory: The Johnny Appleseed festival is wonderful in the fall. There are some great antique shoppes here or near here as well.
