Summer Fun in Fort Wayne
Get away to Fort Wayne this summer!
Families love Fort Wayne, Indiana - one of Indiana’s best cities for summer fun!
Every visit starts at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo - consistently named one of the top zoos in the nation! You can enjoy a ride in every part of the zoo (from a sky ride, to a log ride to a train excursion!) and experience great animal experiences (feed a giraffe, pet a stingray, stroll among kangaroos!). New this summer, visitors will love monkey island and the river otter exhibit that bring children up-close-and-personal with these furry friends.
In August, families will want to head downtown to see the Midwest’s newest attraction: Promenade Park at Riverfront Fort Wayne. Promenade Park offers innovative experiences for your family - including a tree top canopy trail, hands-on kids canal, restaurants, accessible park and more. Boat rentals also offer families the opportunity to get out on the water to explore this natural urban experience. Explore our rivers by canoe and kayak with these easy river itineraries.
And, we make it easy and affordable. Check out our Fort Wayne Getaway Guide to learn all about the best of our city—including attractions, special events, hotel packages, coupons, and more! You can even register to win a getaway!
