If you're coming to Fort Wayne for a wedding, you might have a little free time to spend exploring our Summit City. Well good! We've got something to make your visit here special!
Think the staple stores, like J. C. Penney, Sears, Macys, and Carson's. (Check out the china and crystal at Macy's, especially.) Then, there are the boutiques, like Things Remembered (they have a wide variety of items that can be monogrammed) and salons (check out the salon at J.C. Penney, or Regis Salon). Need footwear? There are lots of different shoe shops in the Mall, and boutique stores, like Christopher and Banks, Claire's, and Lids.
This is an outdoor mall, where you stroll outside to get from one store to the next. If you're in the mood for higher-end fashion and accessories, check out Von Maur. Other stores include Barnes and Noble, Yankee Candle, Vera Bradley, Gymboree, and a number of restaurants. From Chick-fil-A to Panera to Biaggi's Ristorante Italiano, you can find a fit for your palate here.

Want to find something unique? Try this Amish quilt shop that sells furniture, sewing supplies, and a variety of other unique gift items. The lady at the counter is highly efficient and is able to tell you just how the quilts are put together and how they can set up different designs. This is a terrific place to shop and just absorb the neat culture. (Katie's address is 13312 Schwartz Road, Grabill, Indiana, 46741)
