Camp Bowie District is a not-for-profit public improvement organization dedicated to beautification projects on the Boulevard, promoting and driving traffic to its businesses, spurring economic development, and hosting special community events such as the Fort Worth Music Festival, Camp Bowie Christmas, Glory Days Classic Car Show and more.
The historic Boulevard is divided into three distinct zones, each offering its own unique feel: The Bricks, Ridglea and Camp Bowie West.
The Bricks (University Drive to I-30):
The Bricks is best known for its iconic Texas Thurber brick roads, which date back to the early 1920s. It has become a cultural hub, housing some of the nation’s best museums — including The Modern, which has been listed No. 2 on Travel + Leisure’s list of top museums. Boutique shopping and family-owned restaurants found in this historic zone also add to Camp Bowie’s unique atmosphere.
Ridglea (I-30 to Alta Mere):
A 1940s Mediterranean-style influence is showcased throughout the architecture of the Ridglea zone. It houses upscale retail, trendy specialty shops and casual dining. It is also home to the historic Ridglea Theater, where a long roster of nationally-acclaimed classic bands have made their mark.
Camp Bowie West (Alta Mere to 820, including the infamous traffic circle):
With all the vintage neon signage, the feel of Camp Bowie West embodies a 1950s era of the automobile. You will find a variety of commercial businesses, treasured local eateries, automotive dealerships and an industrial art gallery in this corridor.
