Arlington Heights: Gateway to Fort Worth Culture, History, and Nightlife

The property values in Arlington Heights are among some the highest in Fort Worth. The great location — close to downtown with access to I-30 — makes most of the city’s greatest cultural attractions easily accessible.

Arlington Heights is one of the older neighborhoods in Fort Worth. Encompassing an area slightly west of downtown, it continues to be one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Fort Worth. With easy access to I-30, the quaint shops and restaurants of old Camp Bowie Boulevard, the nightlife of West 7th Street, and the nearby Cultural District, Arlington Heights is a great centralized location for those looking to live in a great Fort Worth neighborhood. Here’s a tour of some of the area’s most notable features.

Architecture

One of the reasons this neighborhood remains vital is because of its variety of architectural styles. From grand early 20th-century period-revival homes and Tudor designs to adorable midcentury Craftsman-style bungalows, there’s something for everybody. Many homes have been modernized and renovated. The neighborhood is a mix of young families, professionals, and retirees.

Camp Bowie and the Cultural District

The older section of Camp Bowie, known by locals as “The Bricks,” is a red-macadam-paved stretch of road that includes a variety of local specialty boutiques, banks, services, and some of Fort Worth’s better restaurants. Its eastern edge includes the Cultural District, which includes such Fort Worth art museums as the Kimball Art Museum, the Amon Carter Museum, and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, which has a permanent collection that includes works by Anselm Kiefer, Robert Motherwell, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Gerhard Richter, Susan Rothenberg, Richard Serra, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman, and Andy Warhol.

West 7th Street

Just beyond the neighborhood’s eastern border is the newly renovated West 7th Street area. This gateway to downtown Fort Worth includes an eclectic mix of restaurants, shopping, bars, and luxury apartments. It has quickly become one of Fort Worth’s premier destinations for nightlife.

Schools

Arlington Heights is in the Fort Worth Independent School District. Arlington Heights High School, on the corner of Hulen Street and I-30, is one of the city’s oldest and prestigious high schools. Arlington Heights is also conveniently located near Texas Christian University, which is only a 10-minute drive away.

Property Values

The property values in Arlington Heights are among some of the highest in Fort Worth. The great location — close to downtown with access to I-30 — makes most of the city’s major employers easily accessible. Homeowners’ associations and involved residents ensure that properties are well-maintained. The burgeoning West 7th area and the Cultural District also keep home values on the rise.
