I used to think to be a teen in Fort Wayne, Indiana was difficult, but there are so many activities, especially during the summer, that are perfect for young adults!

Regardless of your age or where you’re from, never be afraid to stop by the Visitors Center! The visitor specialists can help you find something to do around town no matter what you like to do (and maybe even give you a deal too). So if you are a teen or just want to feel like a kid again, Fort Wayne is the place for you!

Outdoor Activities

For those who like the outdoors, of course, there are lots of trails to explore, on bike, or foot. What many may not realize is that you can paddleboard, canoe and kayak right on the Fort Wayne’s three rivers! Head over to Fort Wayne Outfitters and they can set you up with everything you need for a fun day on the water. They frequently offer fun activities like guided paddle trips and yoga on the Wells Street Bridge. For the less adventurous, opt for a fun ride on the canal boat.

Indoor Activities for Teens

Lazer X, Combat Ops and UltraZone are your arcade and laser tag destinations. Bowling at Pro Bowl West and Georgetown Entertainment Center never disappoint.

Assemble your team, choose a scenario, and solve the puzzle by finding hidden clues before time runs out in an hour! This activity is perfect for individuals of all ages, and groups of all sizes!
