HISTORIC CAMP BOWIE DISTRICT

This is one of the most historic neighborhoods in Fort Worth, offering a 30-block strip of restaurants and stores, including some of the finest specialty boutiques in the city. To see it all, you’ll definitely want to drive, park and explore: it stretches nine miles from the Fort Worth Cultural District to Highway 820. Once a World War II military training camp, Camp Bowie today is a welcoming, tree-lined thoroughfare with charming pocket parks, trendy shops and casual dining spots. The boulevard is divided into three main sections:

  • The Bricks, the most famous part of the district, is lined with red bricks and home to legendary eateries like Kincaid’s HamburgersThe Original Mexican Eats Café and Bluebonnet Bakery, where generations of locals have gone for baked goods to die for
  • Ridglea has a distinctive 1940s Mediterranean influence in the architecture, including the art-deco Ridglea Theater built in 1948
  • Camp Bowie West is a wide-open corridor which hearkens back to the 1950s with vintage neon signs, beloved eateries and a diverse mix of businesses and trendy retail shops like Maven and Beehive
