Not going to casino night... places to eat? Things to do?


Since my younger sis is to young to go to casino night, we need things to do! I"ve looked at the Fort Wayne visitors sites and not found much interesting.

Wondering if anyone from Fort Wayne or that has been to Fort Wayne can suggest things to do within an hours drive? Or good places to eat lunch during the convention??

So excited!! 3 more weeks!

Yeah, Ribfest is going on that weekend, and it's pretty close.

As for places to eat during the convention, you have your choice from McDonald's, Taco Bell, Arby's, King Gyro's, Rally's, Burger King, Wendy's & Subway. All are within walking distance from the Grand Wayne Center.

There are also lots of local places too, Coney Island, Toscani's, 816 Pint & Slice, Club Soda, The Gas House to name a few. There are plenty of places around town, a few movie theaters, a couple malls, one indoor and one out.

The Botanical Conservatory is within walking distance as well, but I'm not sure how late they will be open.

I'm not going on the Casino Trip either.

Time stands still.....

I was about to cancel my plans for attending the convention until I read there were other restaurants in Ft Wayne besides McD's, BK etc

There are a lot of small places downtown to eat, but most of the other restaurants are a bit farther away! I actually haven't eaten at a lot of them, but maybe that's because I'm such a predictable person! LoL! I'm hoping other people from here have better ideas for all of you!
