Ft. Wayne IN help needed

I asked this before and didnt get very many answers.... so I will try again. I have 2 high school age kids and am obligated to spend a week this summer in Ft. Wayne IN.

Do you know of ANYthing to do there???? My kids are usually board silly when we go (havent been there in years) and I am desperate to find some activities for them.  

My kids are active out door types, video games are not their thing.  We do know about the amusement park in OH but that may not work into our plans.  More local activites would be better.

  • Ive tried.... I can not find things.

    There is a VERY small science museum that is geared towards elementary age kids. There is a zoo but we have a world renowned zoo here where we live that the kids have been to yearly since they were born.  Other than that there is nothing... oh maybe the Lincoln museum... but that is it.

  • They have a pretty nice zoo.  Google Fort Wayne Zoo.  I don't know how old your kids are or if this is something they would enjoy but I tried.  ;)
