Sitting along the convergence of three rivers (the St. Mary’s, St. Joseph and Maumee rivers), Fort Wayne has been a thriving Midwestern city for more than 200 years.

With a walkable downtown, an up-and-coming art scene, historical attractions, river activities and a delicious food scene, Fort Wayne welcomes visitors to explore its Midwestern charms.

Downtown Fort Wayne is compact and walkable with “Downtown Experience” signs clearly directing visitors to the main attractions of the area.
