Greetings from DeKalb County, Indiana where you can enjoy the pleasures of vintage charm together with world-renowned museums. Known for its transportation heritage, DeKalb County (located only 20 miles north of Fort Wayne) boasts a wealth of museums for you to explore. In addition to these “oooh” and “aaah” worthy attractions, you can’t help but enjoy the small-town appeal of this destination. Visitors stroll picturesque downtown squares filled with thriving storefronts full of unique shops and eateries. And I would be remiss not to mention the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival. Auburn, the hub of DeKalb County, is home to the world’s largest classic car show and festival. People gather from near and far around Labor Day weekend to enjoy events of all kinds for this annual fest. A few other DeKalb County highlights to whet your whistle include festivals galore, winery & vineyard, local restaurants, drive-in movie theater, pickle factory tours, shopping, golf, Christmas tree farm, covered bridge and antiques just to name a few. In many ways, visiting DeKalb County feels like going back in time and experiencing a bygone era. So cozy up at a Bed & Breakfast and enjoy a true classic destination here in Northeast Indiana. Its a great addition to your Fort Wayne itinerary!
