The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
Fort Wayne is a city in northeastern Indiana, USA and the county seat of Allen County. As of 2005, an estimated 248,341 lived in the city proper. The Fort Wayne Metropolitan Statistical Area has a population of 502,141, as of the 2004 update of the 2000 census. Nearly equidistant from Detroit, Michigan, Chicago, Illinois and Cincinnati, Ohio, it has historically served as a transportation and communications center for the region, and an incubator for many products and companies, much more so than its size might suggest. Fort Wayne is Indiana's second largest city after Indianapolis, the state's capital.
Fort Wayne is named after Gen. Mad Anthony Wayne. The United States Army built this last of a series of forts near the community of Kekionga, the largest of all Miami villages, located where the St. Joseph River and St. Marys River join to form the Maumee River. The Miami nation established the first settlement at the Maumee, St. Joseph and St. Mary's Rivers in the mid 17th Century. Called Kekionga, the village was the traditional capital of the Miami nation and related Algonquian tribes.
The Fort Wayne region has always been prominent in the automotive industry. John Lambert of nearby Ohio City, Ohio built the first gasoline-powered automobile in the U.S. in 1891. The Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg were manufactured in nearby Auburn, Indiana. International Harvester Corporation manufactured trucks in New Haven, Indiana from 1910 until 1982, and produced the Scout, one of the first SUVs, sports utility vehicle.
The Fort Wayne Museum of Art permanently features a 1,300-piece collection,as well as traveling exhibits. Fort Wayne has a rich sports tradition, especially for a city of its size. Fort Wayne is the home of Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, with an enrollment of 11,755 is the 5th-largest public university campus in Indiana.

Fort Wayne is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in United States worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of United States.
