Grab a Bite

At the Grand Wayne Convention Center, you’re only a hop, skip, and a jump away from some of the best dining options our city has to offer. From burgers and fries, pizza by the slice, authentic gyros or a  steak dinner, you’ll find local eateries as far as the eye can see. 

For the Kids

If you’re traveling with the family, you’ll be pleased to know that we have plenty of activities for the kiddos. Head to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo to watch the orangutans,  feed the giraffes, or pet the stingrays! If science is more your thing, be sure to check out the exhibits at Science Central.  Or, consider getting lost while wandering through our Botanical Gardens.

Hit the Trails 

Get out and move at one of our many outdoor activity spots throughout the city. Fort Wayne has an extensive parks and trails network along our three rivers. We’re especially excited about Fort Wayne’s newest addition, Promenade Park. Located just a few blocks from the Grand Wayne, it’s a great way to experience the breathtaking view of downtown Fort Wayne.

Catch a Game

The Fort is home to two professional sports teams – the Minor League Baseball Fort Wayne TinCaps and the ECHL hockey team, the Fort Wayne Komets. Also, our city is welcoming a professional soccer team in 2020! You’ll be able to catch a game no matter what the season.

If you’re up for a drive, Fort Wayne is only a few hours away from several major midwest cities, such as Chicago, Indianapolis, Detroit, Columbus, and more. Fort Wayne, Indiana is a midwest destination you truly don’t want to miss.
