With summer vacations just around the corner, you can start dreaming of kicking your feet up on the beach! Here at Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) we are happy to make vacation planning a little bit easier with Allegiant. Allegiant offers non-stop service to Fort Myers/Punta Gorda, Orlando/Sanford, Phoenix/Mesa (seasonal), Tampa/St. Pete and Myrtle Beach (seasonal) from FWA. That’s five great vacation destinations that are just one plane ride away!

Fort Myers/Punta Gorda – Fly into Punta Gorda Airport and you have two great places to explore. If you’re looking for a true beach vacation, Fort Myers is the place for you. With a variety of water-related things to do ranging from lounging on the beach to taking sailing lessons, you’ll have a true Florida vacation in this locale. For something a little more relaxed, step into Punta Gorda’s vast historic district, take a leisurely stroll along waterside shops or take in the town’s many natural attractions. 

Orlando/Sanford – Working at the airport, we see a lot of excited children (and even adults) waiting to board their Orlando flight to head to Disney World! Enjoy visiting your favorite Disney characters from Minnie and Mickey to Anna and Elsa. And, don’t miss out on the other great Orlando spots like Universal Studios, Harry Potter World and more! If something a little more laid back is your style, check out Sanford. Sanford is a town full of charm with unique shops, antique stores and great restaurants. 

Phoenix/Mesa – Explore the beautiful landscape of Arizona with a trip to the Phoenix/Mesa area. Take a trip to the Grand Canyon. Get a bird’s eye view of the Arizona scenery by taking a hot air balloon ride. Both cities are known for their arts, culture and outdoor adventures guaranteeing that you will not be bored during your stay.

Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg – When you arrive at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport you’ll find yourself right in between two great summer vacation destinations—Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg, Florida. Tampa Bay is known for its rich culture, delicious eats, attractions, water excursions and more. Visit St. Pete and you’ll have fun and sun right at your fingertips. In fact, St. Petersburg is known as the Sunshine City! 

Myrtle Beach – Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is a great place for the whole family; there really is something for everyone! Whether your family prefers catching rays on the beach or checking out unique museums and attractions, you won’t be disappointed with your stay in Myrtle Beach.
