The general atmosphere of the area seems to lean in a more positive direction. I enjoy the things to do, everything from the children's zoo to the Tincap's stadium. I like to see that the future for the Fort Wayne area includes the restoration of the riverside locations.

The general atmosphere is positive and welcoming.
There are quite a few small independent shops in the area with unique designs for furniture and clothing.
