Camp Bowie District Fort Worth Texas
Gotta Check It Out: Camp Bowie District
Renamed after a nearby World War I military training camp, Camp Bowie Boulevard has evolved into the City's premier commerce corridor. Today Camp Bowie remains a central corridor fulfilling retail, restaurant, entertainment, and necessities for those who live in and around the area. Much of the history can be seen in the preserved buildings that still are home to locally-owned businesses. Fort Worthians still shop the aisles of Roy Pope Grocery, feast on a burger from Kincaid's, or enjoy the Roosevelt Special at The Original. Special occasions are celebrated with a pastry or cake from Blue Bonnet Bakery, and congregations still gather at a number of churches that all have called Camp Bowie home for 90 plus years.
Tree-lined with pocket parks, trendy shops, and delicious dining spots, the Boulevard is divided into two sections: The Bricks & Ridglea. The Bricks, maybe the most famous aspect of the district, is lined with historic red bricks and is home to many legendary spots in Fort Worth. Further West, Ridglea holds a distinctive 1940s Mediterranean influence in the architecture, including the famous Ridglea Theater, built-in 1948. Known for its unique bakeries, boutiques, eateries, and everyday necessities, the Boulevard boasts a host of the trendiest shopping in Fort Worth. To see it all, you'll want to drive, park and explore: it stretches six miles from the Fort Worth Cultural District to Camp Bowie W. Blvd.
