Wabash County Reviews

Wabash county has seen much growth as a town and a community. The first Friday of every month they set up down town for residents and visitors to explore the art and local businesses. Mom and Pop shops have been in quite the spotlight the past few years. I find it encouraging. It almost seems like the town is trying to transform into a tourist attraction. I would like to see more services offered rather than small clothing stores and fast food. It would be rather brilliant to open something for teens and young adults to fill their evening time; that might help get some trouble off the streets if we have more activities after the shops cloths. I believe that the honey well center provided excellent entertainment, but that is not everyone taste. The current renovation of the Eagles theater will provide some life to the evening but not uphold everyone interests.

A small town with a very unique down home feel. Wabash offers visitors more than just a one day experience. With an array of various activities and sites to see, Wabash is a small place with a big town feel. For entertainment, events hosted by Honeywell Center are a must! Food from locally owned restaurants like Market Street Grill, are incredible. Also, First Fridays in downtown Wabash, offer excellent shops that provide a little something for everyone! For a couple’s getaway, I suggest experiencing the Charley Creek In. Charley Creek provides a night of dinner and fabulous vintage room accommodations.
Wabash is a very beautiful historic town.There are many fun family activities. Wabash hosts a first Friday event the first Friday of every month. Lots of activities for children, bouncy houses, face paintings, and food trucks.The Honeywell center has many shows including music and theater from all over the world. The new park view hospital just opened creating lots of new jobs. Overall wabash is a small town with lots of sights to see.
