Some fun facts about Fort Wayne!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Christiansen Group Realty (260)704-0843

Here are some facts about Fort Wayne:

Fort Wayne is in northeastern Indiana with a population of around 250,000 and growing. It is the second largest city in Indiana next to Indianapolis, and is a short drive (2-4 hours) from places like Chicago, Detroit, and Columbus.

There are plenty of great colleges in Fort Wayne including Indiana U Purdue U Fort Wayne (IPFW), St. Francis University, Concordia University, Taylor University and Indiana Wesleyan University. It is also home to a few technical colleges like ITT and Ivy Tech.

Fort Wayne’s nationally recognized local park system received the “Gold Medal Award” from the National Park and Recreation Association. There are hundreds of lakes that offer fishing, boating and water enthusiasts year-round recreation. As of 2005, the city had 87 parks covering 2,199.55 acres.

Fort Wayne International Airport is one of just a handful of Midwest airports with a 12,000 foot runway. State-of-the- art all weather instrument landing systems, an FAA manned Air Traffic Control Tower, plus Fort Wayne’s National Weather Service, give FW International the capability to operate 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

Fort Wayne is also home to 993 restaurants, 10 movie theaters, 53 golf courses (within 30 miles), and 23 libraries.

All around Fort Wayne is a great place to live!  I should know, I have lived here on and off since 1986.  Man that seems like a long time ago.  So whether you are buying, selling or investing in Fort Wayne, I would be happy to assist you in any of your real estate needs!
