A slightly relaxed version of Downtown Dallas, an apartment in Fort Worth’s own city center puts the pulse of the city right outside your doorstep. With features such as Sundance Square, Water Gardens and Bass Hall, you’ll see your fair share of tourists; yet you’ll still feel kind of like you own the place. If you’re into a historical feel, check out The Electric Building Apartments. Fort Worth is growing by the day, so if you’re looking to make the move we recommend starting your apartment search sooner rather than later!

Downtown Fort Worth


Likened to the Bishop Arts District of Dallas, Magnolia is one of Fort Worth’s greatest millenial gems. Try Heim Barbecue if you’re up for early arrival - the lines get pretty gritty. Of course to avoid your after lunch food coma you’ll need a little caffeine boost; look no further than Craftwork Coffee for your afternoon espresso needs. Now that you’re hyped up, grab a bike for a ride around the historic Fairmount neighborhood. Simply put, Magnolia’s hip charm is undeniable. With the rapid development of this area, apartment construction will likely be on the rise soon; but for now it serves as an afternoon or evening well spent!

Museum District

For a city of its size, the fine arts scene of Fort Worth is pretty incredible. Even for a Dallasite, The Kimbell and The Modern Art Museums are worth the trek. Aficionado of the arts? This might just be the place to start your apartment search. With the pleasures of 7th street within walking distance, this slightly quieter neighborhood is a hard one to beat.

Arlington Heights

You may have to dodge a high schooler crossing Hulen on your way to Central Market, but this Fort Worth neighborhood is a staple. While there aren’t an abundance of apartments in this more familial area, homes and duplexes for rent are a dime a dozen.
