Living in Fort Wayne

Fort Wayne, known as “The Summit City”, lies atop a regional land summit amid mainly flat terrain. The city is situated approximately eighteen miles from Ohio State in northeast Indiana, USA. Fort Worth experiences four distinct seasons, with hot, humid summers and cold winters with about thirty inches of snow each year. Living in Fort Wayne as an expatriate, it is useful to know that the city is unofficially divided into four quadrants: northeast, northwest, southeast and southwest. Fort Wayne has 86 public parks to enjoy, and three public golf courses. A system of biking and walking trails has been developed along the riverbanks, known as the Rivergreenways. The city has undergone much Downtown redevelopment and reinvestment, transforming the landscape and creating a distinct cultural district. Expats living in Fort Wayne wishing to make contact with other expatriates in Fort Wayne and its surrounding areas should register with InterNations, the online community for expats and global minds. The many discussion groups and forums on the InterNations website allow individuals and their partners to communicate with those of a similar professional status, both for business purposes and for socializing online.

Moving to Fort Wayne

The city is served by the Fort Wayne International Airport, and a single interstate highway (Interstate 69), together with an auxiliary highway, known as Interstate 469. The Airport Expressway provides a link on to the Interstate 69, whilst several Indiana State Roads intersect the city. The nearest passenger railway is the AMTRAK Capitol Limited, 25 miles north of Fort Wayne in Waterloo. Fort Wayne has a mass transportation system, with Citilink providing twelve bus routes, and there are also Campuslink and Medilink services. Relocating to a new country is always a challenge, and moving to Fort Wayne as an expatriate should be an exciting venture, but nothing ever runs to plan in real life and you may find the change in lifestyle and adjusting to your new surroundings difficult. It then helps to contact fellow expatriates who are willing to offer advice and useful tips via the InterNations platform. The online forums cover many areas of expat life, and you should be able to locate those with experience of Indiana and even Fort Wayne itself. For general advice on the process of relocation, the InterNations’ Expat Magazine is full of useful articles on a wide range of topics, and is a recommended read before your intended move to Fort Wayne, and afterwards, to help you plan and recover from the process and potential culture shock as you settle into working life.

Working in Fort Wayne

The two largest employment sectors in Fort Wayne are manufacturing and defense. Distribution, logistics and transport follow, and there is a rising leisure and hospitality sector. Tourism and financial services are also key employers. Several universities are based in or near to Fort Wayne, including the public Indiana University - Purdue University of Fort Wayne, and the private Concordia Theological Seminary, the Indiana Institute of Technology and the University of Saint Francis. There is a downtown cultural district in Fort Wayne, with some fifteen museums and art galleries, including the Museum of Art and the African/African American museum. The Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory and Fort Wayne Zoo are well worth visiting, together with the Fort Wayne History Center Further afield in Allen County, the library houses one of the largest genealogical collections in the US and is a fascinating collection. Finding fellow expats working in Fort Wayne via the InterNations website may well result in a group of fellow members organizing social meetings and visits to any of the above locations.
