WELCOME TO FORT WAYNE. If you haven’t visited us lately, you’re in for a nice surprise. There’s more to see and do, and a short walk delivers you to sidewalk cafés, eateries, fine dining, nationally acclaimed museums and art galleries, a vibrant nightlife, live music, stage shows, botanical gardens, an internationally recognized library, and an extensive parks and trails network along Fort Wayne’s three rivers. It’s all part of a reimagined downtown where business, sports, and culture thrive.

Here, you’ll enjoy a front-row seat. Across the street, the new $90 million Harrison Square revitalization project features Parkview Field’s mixed-use stadium—home to the Fort Wayne TinCaps, Class A Minor League Baseball affiliate of the San Diego Padres—along with new businesses, urban living, retail shops, entertainment venues, and more. The excitement is contagious—join us for a walking tour or visit us online for a virtual tour at your own pace.
