Swayzee, Indiana was founded in 1880. The railroad made it possible for many professions to be introduced to the town. Its motto is, "The only Swayzee in the world," because it is said that a sailor sent a postcard home to his family and used only "Swayzee" as the address, but it still made its way to the family. Another fun fact is that this is where the turn signal for the car was said to be invented. For more fun facts and information, you and your dog should check out the historical markers that can be found in and around the city, most of which are located along a walking path.
You and your whole family will enjoy going over to Swayzee East Park. There are several things you can do while you are here, including playing on the playground, exploring the walking path, and sitting under the shade tree with a good book.

Gas City, IN is a little under 20 minutes from Swayzee, but the short drive is well worth it! Payne's is not your average pet-friendly restaurant.

Payne's has an Urban Garden which supplies all the fruits and veggies for the restaurant. They believe good food starts with fresh ingredients. The best part is your dog can join you for the feast! Leashed, well-behaved canine customers are welcome at the outdoor seating area. Bone Appetit!
