Must Do

  1. Start in downtown's Promenade Park and shop the Wells Street Corridor for some unique flavors of Fort Wayne
  2. Stroll peaceful Lindenwood Cemetery to "meet" many of Fort Wayne's founders.
  3. Many of Fort Wayne's youth sports venues are found in this district - including the SportONE Fieldhouse, SportONE Icehouse, and Turnstone.


Along with the restaurants on the Wells Street Corridor, visitors to this district will enjoy the restaurants on West Main Street including Paula's Seafood (try the catch of the day alongside some key lime pie), Redwood Inn (the sausage calzones are legendary), and Junk Ditch Brewing Co (where the farm-to-fork menu changes daily.)

Things To Do

The University of St Francis can be found here and is home to outstanding arts and sporting events for all to enjoy.


Lindenwood Nature Preserve is a lovely wooded park in the heart of the city. Stroll a boardwalk through the woods for a mile on the Trail of Reflection to reach one of the most beautiful ponds in Allen County - reflecting all the colors of fall each season. 


The Wells Street Corridor is home to the famous Hyde Brothers Books, among many other unique shops.


O'Sullivan's on Main Street and Deer Park near St. Francis are two hot-spots come evening!
