Be a tourist in your own hometown!

A few weekends ago was "Be a tourist in your own hometown" put on by the Fort Wayne Visitors Bureau. It's a great event where you can get a pass and go to numerous museums in Fort Wayne on one particular Sunday during the year for free. The possible places to go were:
African-American Historical Museum,
Allen County Courthouse,
Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory,
Fort Wayne Firefighter's Museum,
Fort Wayne Museum of Art,
The History Center,
Science Central,
The Lincoln Tower

My friend Lydia went with me and we decided to hit the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Artlink, the African American Historical Museum, and The Lincoln Tower. It was great! We had a lot of fun even though we realized after we got there that the African-American History Museum had been hit by lightning a few months before and part of it was closed, plus the Museum of Art didn't have anything on display because they were between exhibits, and that Artlink really is free all the time..... but alas... there is one place you can't just stop by anytime that you like: LINCOLN TOWER!

So we made the best of it and went to see the Lincoln Tower and take some pictures while we were up there. It's such a great view! And the best part was that 98.9 the Bear radio station was actually having a concert out in Freiman Square and we got to hear Deuce playing while we were up on top of the tower! Fantastic! Great way to spend a Sunday for nothing at all!!!
