A little Fort Wayne fly by…and down and around and in
Are you ready to see the city in a new light?
Maybe a better way to put it — are you ready to see the city from a new angle?
We’re talking about being able to see it from a bird’s eye view. Literally. We’re talking about being able to zip over the dome of the Allen County Courthouse, zoom down onto the spires of the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception or even go inside to admire the intricate walls ceiling of the historic Embassy Theater.
All from your couch.
The Downtown Improvement District announced the launch of its 360° Virtual Tour of Downtown this week.
Designed to connect locals and visitors alike to the businesses and amenities in the hear of the city, the interactive website uses numerous aerial, business and street level views to give those wanting to come see the city a guide to what’s available.
So far, 58 retail and restaurant locations, as well as cultural and parking information, are navigable on the website www.DowntownFortWayne.com/360-tour.
“Our mission is advancing the vibrancy of Downtown Fort Wayne and that means getting more people to stay longer,” said Bill Brown, president of the Downtown Improvement District. “We continue to grow and improve through our collaboration and appreciate the support of everyone who has made this virtual tour such a fun and valuable way to promote Downtown Fort Wayne.”
The inside of each business featured on the site can be viewed from every angle. Haven’t visited the Hoppy Gnome yet but want to get a peek of what’s inside? No problem.
Want to see the inside of the History Center gift shop, or the Downtown Improvement District Office?
Again, no problem.
“These new 360° videos beautifully showcase Downtown Fort Wayne’s vibrant museums, attractions, restaurants and shopping for our visitors. We are delighted to add this rich content to our city-wide 360° offerings, as we invite visitors to explore Fort Wayne.” said Visit Fort Wayne President, Dan O’Connell.
Parking areas and restrooms are clearly marked on the map, as well.
So if you’re a planner and are looking to come downtown, stop at the website. Get a look at what you want to do. And see the downtown like you really haven’t ever before.
