Fort Worth’s Best Neighborhoods — the City’s Most Coveted Addresses

IIf you live in Fort Worth you already know that the city has some of the most beautiful and interesting neighborhoods in the state of Texas. It even includes one of the richest cities with the largest and highest rated homes.

From perfect millennial rookie homes to castle-like properties, this grown-up cowtown has it all. Whether you want to get closer to the nightlife or settle into a quiet country club oasis that’s still within easy reach of the cultural district, Fort Worth is full of options.

But which ones do you really need to know? These are Fort Worth’s best neighborhoods.

Arlington Heights

Located north of I-30 and below Camp Bowie Boulevard, Arlington Heights is a great neighborhood for families and single millennials. Much of the neighborhood is made up of suburban homes that provide plenty of space for those who like space, yet are close to many things to do.

In addition to the cultural district, Arlington Heights offers easy access to some of Fort Worth’s best museums. It’s also just a 10-minute drive to West 7th, which has tons of restaurants, shops, and a movie theater. Most of the houses are cozy and handcrafted and serve both young professionals and families.


Best known for the Rivercrest Country Club, this exclusive neighborhood is located in West Fort Worth. Still near downtown, Rivercrest (technically called the Crestline) is a quiet place to go about family life and to go in and out of town if necessary.

The parish dates back to 1918 and has large houses of great value. Crestline Road is home to some of the city’s finest homes perched on a cliff overlooking the river. This area is home to tons of golfers and families with young children, all of whom are surrounded by wooded areas and hiking trails.

Located in the Near Southside neighborhood, Fairmount is a historic neighborhood in Fort Worth. It’s on the northern border to popular Magnolia Avenue, which has several great spots for coffee and food. Ellerbe Fine Foods, Avoca Coffee Roasters, and the original home barbecue are just a few excellent options.

The neighborhood includes a park, elementary school, and middle school, making it a great place for kids. It has the best of both worlds with charming homes and lots to do around Magnolia Avenue. Fairmount is known as the largest historic district in the Southwest and has tons of historic and charming homes.

Westover Hills

As a city in its own right, Westover Hills is one of the wealthiest cities in Texas. The population is only around 700 people, but the houses are huge. The properties offer elevated landscapes with views from the east and west. Most of the land was originally owned by Amon G. Carter and house construction began in the early 1930s.

The city is only about 10 minutes by car from the cultural quarter, so you can always visit the latest museum exhibition. It’s also only about a five-minute drive from tons of River District restaurants, such as Heim Barbecue, Salsa Limon, and Gemelle.

There are few downsides to living next to one of the finest college campuses in America. This neighborhood, adjacent to Texas Christian University, has more mid-size homes than anything, but it’s the super family-friendly location that makes it a hot neighborhood.

Many areas of the neighborhood are filled with Tanglewood elementary school systems, so there are plenty of young children in Westcliff. And prices for homes in Westcliff range from $ 200,000 to $ million, so there’s something for a wide variety of income levels. The neighborhood has easy access to a college football game at Amon G. Carter Stadium or a refill at the TCU campus store.

While Westcliff is definitely no longer just for college kids, that doesn’t mean you can’t show off your Horned Frog spirit anymore.
