Yee-haw - 9/3/2019

Fort Wayne, not so great anymore! - 8/27/2019
I lived in Fort Wayne from 1962 until 1988 then moved north. Fort Wayne was a nice city at one time. It's sad to say, but today, it's become to highly populated with more crime and tons of crazy road rage drivers. Not such a great place to raise a family anymore, but this is mostly true anywhere Read More

A gem in the midwest - 5/3/2019
I've lived here my whole life and it's a great place to raise a family. Lots of stuff to do,either it be sports,music,festivals, art or drama scene, outdoor activities galore. Lots of churches for people of faith,lots of bars and clubs for people who like to party. Fort Wayne had alot of job opportunities as well. Great schools and colleges as well. It's within 300 miles of alot of bigger cities in the midwest for close getaways. Love Indiana I just hate the winter. If ya like the cold you'll live it here year round. Read More

City of Future - 4/14/2019
I've lived in the city for 5 months now. The city is definitely growing. Lots of jobs opportunities, incredibly affordable, best location ever and slowly turning into nice vibe city. It's slowly getting there and I enjoy every day being part of it and helping FW to one day be shoulder to shoulder with the biggest and strongest cities in the US. Not because that's important but because FW deserves it. Read More

Thriving Fort Wayne - 4/2/2015
I have lived here since August 2013 due to a new job. My $82,000 salary affords me a very comfortable life style. About 20 years ago, Fort Wayne lost a lost of manufacturing industry and since 2010, the city government has been working hard to reshape the businesses that call Fort Wayne home. Many upscale retail businesses are doing well here. Slowly, businesses are moving to the area. Consequently, more job options are becoming more available. There is a thriving community college (about 12,000 enrolled annually), Indiana University and Purdue University share a Fort Wayne campus (called IPFW), and private colleges with campuses are Trine University, Indiana Tech University, and University of St. Francis. With that many colleges in the area, cultural options abound. Growth is to the southwest and northwest sectors of town. The original areas of Fort Wayne are well maintained and provide old world charm. There is enough population (approx 250,000 within city limits; another Read More

At least it changes all the time - 7/27/2013
Fort Wayne has a lot of cloudy humid days but just when you start to get sick of the bad day an almost perfect weather day will slip in to help make up of the Read More

Fort Wayne is not a place to live! - 10/22/2011
The city is ran by greedy morons and does everything to line pockets of the city council members and do their personal agenda. The city, council, politicians, especially mayor Tom Henry, uses the city for his/hers personal gain and affluences. They do not treat the citizens with equally or with justice. I don't blame major corporation for pulling out. The city treated them (as citizens living in this city and the company) as bad as it does its tax paying blue collar workers/ citizens (us the 99). Fort Wayne has to be one of the worst places to live. Surely do not come here for the weather. It may have cheap housing here, but tell me why do we have such a high rate of homeless here? Something is really wrong here in Fort Wayne. Air and water quality is bad here(look at EPA statistics). Stress level for this city is about the highest in the nation and there is no quality here, just cheap house, but jobs here do not pay enough to make it worth it. A Lousy City and a poor excuse Read More

Good place to live - 2/17/2011
I grew up here wanting to live in the southern US; however, as I raise my family here I'm realizing it is very nice. The county schools rank pretty good. There are parks everywhere with several bike trails popping up everywhere. Theaters and shopping are ample. Cost of living is very low. And there is easy access to several major cities within 2-4 hours ie. Indianapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo, etc. We are also within a couple hours of the Lake Michigan and Lake Erie. If you like lake activities there are several clean lakes scattered throughout to the west and north of all sizes and price ranges. The only negative is that winters can drag on but if you dress right and drive responsibley you can manage with good spirits. I love how diverse our city is getting as minorities are making up close to 1/3-1/2 of our population. People are very helpfull and friendly in general with the southeast side of town as the exception. For business owners as myself Read More

Great Place to live. - 8/24/2010
I got out of the Navy in 2003 and moved to Fort Wayne. I was a MN native and my wife was a VA native. We both within a couple years fell in love with the city. It has that small town feel with the big city amenities. We love going to the new Tin Cap stadium to watch a baseball game. The festivals start in May and don't end till November. We have 3 kids and it is hard to think about raising our kids in another place. Chicago is only 3 hours away, Cincinatti is 4, and many other close places to get to. There is a wonderful Zoo and Science Museum. If any one is looking to come it is great. Maybe not for the young people looking for a big city Read More
