Take in a Broadway show at the historic Embassy Theatre, and indulge in an evening of classical music at a Fort Wayne Philharmonic performance.

Near your hotel, cheer the Fort Wayne Tin Caps at Parkview Baseball Field, or follow flying pucks at a Fort Wayne Komets Hockey Game. You can walk among the orchids and palms at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory in downtown Fort Wayne, near your accommodations. Browse the shops at Glenbrook Square, Indiana’s largest shopping mall––perfect for souvenirs and local favorites alike, you can pick up some DeBrand Fine Chocolates, or a Vera Bradley handbag or purse.
Not far from your Fort Wayne hotel at Fox Island County Park, see the glacial sand dunes, or go hiking or cross-country skiing along the preserve’s many marked trails. There’s swimming at Bowman Lake, and canoeing on Cedar Creek at Cook’s Landing County Park.
