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!

Shopping
Glenbrook Square Mall

 

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.

Jefferson Pointe

 

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.

Katie's Kountry Korner

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)

 

Activities
Foellinger-Freinamann Botanical Conservatory
From butterflies to piñatas, there's always a different display to check out at the Botanical Conservatory. It's peaceful, too; you can wander along brick paths, enjoying the quiet calm or sitting on a bench near the waterfall. Created like three giant pyramids made of glass, the Conservatory has bright, natural light all day, and you can just take time to relax in any of the three display rooms.
 
Sportone/Parkview Icehouse
Why not try ice skating? We have ice for skating - inside. There are a lot of hockey events at the Icehouse, but there are also times every day Monday through Saturday when the public is invited to come and cut a few figures in the ice. Check the schedule for open times and costs of - and call ahead, to make sure there is no special event that might be taking ice time.
 
Parkview Field
Feel like seeing a ball game? Parkview Field is home to the Fort Wayne TinCaps, and the stadium is the latest in comfort. From seats on the grass to benches and cushioned chairs, you pick the place you want to be, and then let the TinCaps and their staff do the rest.
