Check out 9 unique ways to rediscover what The Boulevard can bring to you. Are you up for the challenge?
1. Expand Your Horizons
As the world of fitness has changed and evolved over time, Camp Bowie businesses have kept up with the demand for healthy and active lifestyles. The variety of gyms, studios, and training facilities that are contained in Camp Bowie helps keep the communal lifestyle that most locals demand. Play, eat, live The Boulevard.

2. Go progressive Style for Dinner
These days it's hard to get out of the house and try something different. Your next night out, try a "progressive style" for dinner. Start with drinks and appetizers from Winslow's Wine Cafe, enjoy a delicious entrée Micheals Cuisine, and top it off with dessert from Buttermilk Sky Pies. Progressive style dining is the perfect way to change up your dinner plans!
3. Travel Back in Time
Experience culture right in your backyard and check out any of the museums in the Cultural District. From The Amon Carter Museum featuring numerous exhibition reviews like, Culture Shock, to The Modern Art Museum's Mark Bradford: End Papers and an extension Flesh and Blood, there is much to see and appreciate. Don't forget about The Kimbell Art Museum!
Do you have kids to entertain? Then The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is open and ready to educate your kids this summer. Updated hours and safety features are available on the museum websites.
4. Discover Your Inner Green Thumb
Interested in spicing up your garden but don't know where to start? Head to Archie's Gardenland- a growing tradition since 1934. Founded by N.E. Archie Sr., a business focusing on landscaping. Archie's was one of the very few North Texas companies with expertise in the planting and maintenance of large trees. After his first few years in business, the recommendations from his clientele spread and the business moved into a building in the 4900 block of Camp Bowie Blvd. Family owned for four generations, it is through their hard work and commitment which has led to the business’s continued success today.
5. Find Nature in an Urban Environment
There are numerous "pocket parks" located all over Camp Bowie for you to enjoy a little piece of nature. Located on Camp Bowie Boulevard, a peaceful oasis awaits at the Earth Fountain Park. This nine-foot orb is carved from granite by Austin-based artist Philippe Klinefelter. The sculpture, a Fort Worth Public Art project, is located in a traffic triangle know as Byers Green on Camp Bowie Boulevard at Eldridge Street. Carved out of a single, 30-ton block of Texas Sunset Red granite — the same granite used in the Tarrant County Courthouse — the sculpture echoes the color of the Thurber brick used to pave Camp Bowie Boulevard.
6. Get Romantic
