Off-the-Road Adventures, Arts and Entertainment, and Affordable Nightlife

At first glance, Noble County, Indiana may seem like a typical, rural region more attractive to farmers and hunters than up-and-coming young professionals. But situated in one of the fastest-growing regions in the county, minutes from Fort Wayne yet far from traffic jams and long lines, Noble County is bursting with opportunities for off-the-road adventures. Take a quick tour of some must-see spots to imagine how you can #MaketItYourOwn! Then, reach out to the Noble County Young Professional Network and Thrive Noble County to learn more about professional and personal development and networking opportunities!
