Fort Wayne is a business center and the second largest city in Indiana. Located in the northeast corner of the state at the confluence of three rivers, it is a diverse industrial and commercial center with an attractive downtown and a friendly, small-town feel for a city its size. Its industrial base has recovered from the 1980s decline of International Harvester and includes electronics manufacturer Motorola and other high-tech, electric motor and automotive suppliers, as well as the headquarters of Fortune 500 member Lincoln National Life Insurance. Despite the vulnerability of these industries, employment has held steady thanks to the area’s economic diversity. The Cost of Living Index is low at 79.9 although matched by several Indiana cities. Housing is a good value at a median home price just over $100,000; good value is received per dollar spent.. The area has a better-than-average collection of small-scale arts-and-culture amenities for the type of town and some recreation in surrounding areas, but there isn’t a lot to do. There is a strong community pride and sense of resilience to economic setbacks and to the occasional Fort Wayne joke heard from residents of nearby cities. While Fort Wayne has no outstanding draws, it also has no severe drawbacks, hence the relatively high ranking.

The surrounding area is generally level south and east of the city, rolling to the southwest, and quite hilly to the north and northwest. While the climate is influenced somewhat by the nearby Great Lakes, it does not differ greatly from that of other Midwestern cities of the same latitude. Summers are warm and humid. Winters are cool and cloudy, and occasionally very cold and windy. Annual precipitation is well distributed with somewhat larger amounts falling in late spring and early summer. Snow squalls and winter-snow cover are common, but blizzards are infrequent. Summer thunderstorms are common and occasionally severe. The river confluence and low elevation has produced some severe floods. First freeze is mid-October, last is late April.
