Just ask livability.com. They recently ranked Fort Wayne #6 on their list of “Best Affordable Places to Live” citing “low living expenses, including below-average housing, transportation and grocery costs”. Plus, our three minor league sports teams, art galleries and museums, and many annual events.
But, don’t stop there! There are so many more reasons to love Fort Wayne, IN including:
5. Festivals: Summer just wouldn’t be summer without the amazing festivals that Fort Wayne has to offer. Maybe you like the rich history of the Johnny Appleseed Festival, or the food and cultural at Greekfest or Germanfest. Or perhaps you prefer the Three Rivers Festival, which is packed with great things like bed races and Junk Food Alley! Either way, Fort Wayne has a festival for you!
4. The Food: While we’re on the subject, we couldn’t talk about the reasons we love Fort Wayne without mentioning any of the great local eateries such as Coney Island, Pembroke Bakery, 816 Pint & Slice, Casas, Bravas, Loving Cafe, and so many more.
3. The Embassy Theater: Fort Wayne might not be the biggest city in the world, but we certainly have some of the best entertainment! The Embassy Theater right in downtown Fort Wayne hosts hundreds of great shows each year. Whether you are in the mood for a relaxed comedy show, a national concert, or the sounds of our own talented Philharmonic, the Embassy will certainly have what you’re looking for.
Fort Wayne is home to one of the best minor league baseball fields in the United States. Parkview Field, home of the Fort Wayne Tincaps, is a minor league ballpark with a major league attitude. Whether you prefer to take the family to see the post game fireworks, or you like to go out with the guys on “Thirsty Thursdays,” Parkview Field is sure to be a hit.
1. Parks & Trails: Another amazing thing that Fort Wayne has to offer is its many parks and long trail system. Fort Wayne is home to 86 parks on 2,805 Acres! And, we currently have 81 miles of trails to walk, run, and bike. That’s a lot of adventure to be had! From the Splash Pad and disc golf at Shoaff Park (just down the street from Montrose Square Apartments) in the summer, to Ice Skating at Headwaters Park in the Winter, and exploring the trails, the fun is sure to last all year long.
