For the fourth time, Fort Wayne has been awarded the title of All-America City by the National Civic League, making it one of the best places to retire in Indiana. This distinguished honor is only given to 10 cities per year, and every city must first prove to be actively engaging residents to tackle critical challenges in innovative, inclusive and effective ways.
Here’s everything you need to know about the All-America City, Fort Wayne, and how residents at StoryPoint Fort Wayne West can be part of the city’s success.
The city of Fort Wayne is located in northeast Indiana, 18 miles from the Ohio border and 50 miles from the Michigan border. Because of its proximity to both, residents in Fort Wayne can easily travel throughout the Midwest and enjoy all the region has to offer.
Fort Wayne is a larger city, and it has the second-highest population in Indiana, behind Indianapolis.

Fort Wayne was awarded the title of All-America City in 1983, 1998, 2009 and 2021. Most recently, the 2021 award challenged cities to share ways they build equity and resilience.
