Camp Bowie District

Camp Bowie District Discover All 6 Miles
Camp Bowie District is two agencies in one! As a non-profit public improvement district (PID 19), CBD is dedicated to implement beautification and streetscape projects along the Boulevard. As a Business Association for the businesses along the Boulevard, CBD promotes its member businesses through marketing and events. Ultimately, CBD exists to spur economic development for the 6-mile corridor.

Camp Bowie District is rich in variety and history! From eclectic art galleries, to noted museums, to iconic eateries and boutiques, to established neighborhoods, to a history of jazz and Thurber bricks — Camp Bowie District is home to more than 800 businesses along its 9-mile stretch from University Avenue to Loop 820 in west Fort Worth. The historic Boulevard is divided into three distinct zones, each offering its own unique feel: The Bricks, Ridglea Village 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, a venue at which many nationally-acclaimed classic bands have played. Camp Bowie West (Alta Mere to Loop 820, including the infamous Traffic Circle): Vintage neon signs embody the feel of this segment of Camp Bowie West. When Carswell Air Force Base was established in 1942 (now NAS JRB FW - Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth), this segment of the corridor thrived. The wide boulevard pays homage to the American era of the automobile in the 1950s. You will find a variety of commercial businesses, treasured local eateries, automotive dealerships and an industrial art gallery in this corridor.

Mi Cocula Mexican Grill has a reputation for being family-owned and family-friendly, offering an authentic menu and exquisite flavors. Why not treat yourself this #TakeOutTuesday?

Being a family-owned restaurant, the Moreno’s have a passion for making their guests feel at home. Tradition is very important to the Moreno's and they want to share it with Fort Worth. Jackie Moreno explained that they are a “family-oriented restaurant…we have a section on the menu that’s the traditional dishes, and that’s what we make for the holidays.”

Some of their fan favorites are the carne guisada, tamales, and poblanos. It's not every day when a restaurant is dedicated to making you feel like you belong to the family, so whenever you need authentic Mexican cooking, look no further than Mi Cocula! They are open daily from 11:00 AM- 8:00 PM for dine in and curbside pickup! #DineLocalCampBowie #CampBowie #CBDistrict

Happy 50th Anniversary to Sunflower Shoppe Vitamins + More! Half a century ago, Bettye Bradford debuted the Sunflower Shoppe and was known as the pioneering entrepreneur who was way ahead of the health and wellness curve. Recognizing the value of healthy eating, she opened an 800-square-foot shop in Fort Worth’s Wedgwood neighborhood in 1970, stocking her store with herbal supplements and natural foods. Arming herself with research, she also educated her son Rick, the store’s only other employee, in how to help interested customers learn more about ways to eat and live better. For generations this Camp Bowie staple has been serving happy customers. Read more about this amazing family-owned business:
