This summer, your family can find a great, affordable family getaway in Fort Wayne!
Fort Wayne, Indiana's second largest city, is fast becoming one of Indiana's greatest family getaway destinations, and it's easy to see why!
Fort Wayne offers families outstanding attractions, activities, shopping, and entertainment-and it's one of the most affordable and convenient destinations in the Midwest!
So Much To Do
Any trip to Fort Wayne starts at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo
. Named one of the "top ten zoos in the nation," the Children's Zoo offers over 1,500 animals on 42 acres-and countless activities to fill the day. In fact, there are rides in every part of the zoo!
Families are encouraged to "tickle their tress in the treetops" on the Sky Safari in the African Journey, travel through the Australian Outback on a river log ride, and trek through the Indonesian Rain Forest! This summer, you can hand-feed giraffes, get nose-to-nose with a lion, and enjoy the splendors of the Great Barrier Reef at one of Indiana's great treasures - the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo.
And in the evening, you'll want to head downtown to one of Fort Wayne's newest entertainment options - a TinCaps baseball game. Set in a breathtaking new downtown park setting, a TinCaps game is truly fun for the whole family - and seats on the grass start at just $5. Plan your trip around any one of their over 70 home games and you'll be guaranteed to leave a fan!
Fort Wayne also offers dozens of other great museums and entertainment options, from Science Central, where you can test your imagination (and the rules of gravity!) in a hands-on laboratory - to the Botanical Conservatory, where families wander through a sea of lush gardens and tranquil waterfalls, and take in exciting new exhibits with every season.
