FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – Fort Wayne residents were able to get away in their own backyard with the 15th Annual Be a Tourist Day put on by Visit Fort Wayne.
The tour included twelve different local attractions that were free to experience with a passport from the Visitor’s Center.
Science Central, the Lincoln Tower, and the Embassy Theatre were just a few of the sites available to passport holders.
Children were able to experience hands-on fun at Indiana’s interactive 70,000 sq. ft. science center, which opened its doors in 1995.
Visitors could also ascend to the top of the Lincoln Tower, which was built in 1930, and for decades was the tallest building in the state. It offers a great view of downtown and the surrounding area, and other stops on the tour were visible, such as Parkview Field and the Embassy Theatre.
The Embassy was built in 1928, and is one of Indiana’s largest historic theatres. Currently it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and welcomes more than 110,000 people annually.
