Discover northeast Indiana

Northeast Indiana is a great place to make your own. Living in our region means being located just three hours or less by car from major Midwest cities like Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati and Indianapolis. If you want to travel outside of the region, take advantage of the Fort Wayne International Airport, which offers 12 non-stop flights to popular destinations like Atlanta, Orlando and Las Vegas. 

Here in our Midwest city, we live out our values every day. We treat people with respect, appreciate a healthy work/life balance, and help our neighbors. Transplants from larger cities often comment about how easy it is to find a fit in our midsize community. From networking in professional circles to joining a committed volunteer group, we tend to look out for the betterment of our community.

Northern Indiana is home to over 200 lakes, which provides easy and enjoyable access to fishing and recreation. Water experiences like kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding and more are always within reach. Make sure to visit Pokagon State Park, which is home to outdoor adventure year-round, including toboggan runs in the winter, an inviting waterfront and beach for warmer months, miles of trails and a one-of-a-kind inn.

We can’t wait for you to explore everything our region has to offer.
