Happy New Year from Dallasites101! We can’t believe it’s 2022 but we’re so excited for what this year has in store. We know that a new year brings a lot of change, and sometimes that means a new home. If you’re relocating and looking in Fort Worth, or maybe you know someone who is, we’re continuing our Fort Worth content with Smart City Locating to bring you a breakdown of some of the area’s most popular neighborhoods.

Once you make the move across the metroplex, be sure to check out our guide to exploring Fort Worth!


If you’re relocating for work, opt for downtown living in an industrial-style apartment. Downtown is a great, central location with tons of entertainment, walkability, and access to the trolly. Enjoy Sundance Square on the weekends, a bustling development with 30+ restaurants and bars! Downtown is a great place to be for those who enjoy high-energy environments and don’t mind a little noise and traffic.

Just west of downtown is a younger neighborhood known as West 7th. Probably the most walkable of this list, West 7th is filled with a variety of retail, dining, and entertainment. This area is perfect for those looking to live at the center of their weekend plans. With the endless live music and nightlife, residents of the area should never get bored.

Apartments to check out:



Transferring for school? Look no further than the TCU campus and Westcliff! These high-energy areas have so much to do including shopping and a very active nightlife– especially during football season when the streets and pubs are filled with purple. Check out Blue Bonnet Circle or South Hulen Street for diverse food scenes or visit a nearby park to enjoy the Texas weather.

Check out the trendy, up-and-coming neighborhood that backs up to the Trinity River known as Rock Island. There aren’t many restaurants here yet, but the area is quickly expanding with brand new apartments and has all the scenic vibe down by the river. This is a great area if you don’t want to be in the center of the hustle but still close to the action with so many dining and retail options nearby. Conveniently downtown and the Stockyards are both about 10 minutes away in each direction!

Apartments to check out: 



If you want to be a little farther from the buzz of the city, settle into North Fort Worth near Alliance Town Center. Alliance has its own center square with shopping, dining, and movie theatre so you’ll have the entertainment aspect in a suburban atmosphere. This area is right off I-35 so it’s perfect if you plan to travel or need convenient transportation.
