Heading up north a little bit further you will reach the The Fort Wayne Museum of Art, which contemporary art from locally and afar. Two blocks away is the historic Allen County Courthouse where you can take a self-guided tour at anytime. If you are hungry, afterward head over to Fort Wayne’s Famous Coney Island for the famous coney dogs that locals rave about. If hot dogs aren't your preference try Cindy’s Diner an authentic '50s diner, also within a short walking distance. But the tour is not over yet!
Next explore the Allen County Public Library, followed by another walk through the Grand Wayne Center if you please and possibly a stop at another local favorite, the Firefighter’s Museum. Looking across the street you will see Parkview Field once more, home to TinCaps Baseball. Your tour can now end by walking back across the street, through the Grand Wayne Center one last time and back to the Fort Wayne Visitors Center.
If you want to pare down the tour or add additional destinations, the possibilities are endless. Create your own journey or stop by the visitors center to ask questions and gain professional insight on all downtown Fort Wayne can offer on foot!
