Best place to retire: Cultural District
Pros: So much close by - parks, museums, a river, and a university.
Cons: Slim pickings for shopping and not much public transportation.
Real estate: Condos from $250,000 and up; townhouses from $450,000 and up. Almost all-new construction.Condos are going up in downtown Fort Worth, but the area isn't really cooking yet. You might take a chance a little further west on new residences in the Cultural District.
Walk to the top-notch Kimbell Art Museum, as well as museums that specialize in modern art and 19th century American art. Or maybe you'd rather go to the Will Rogers Memorial Center or The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.
Nearby are Trinity Park and the beautiful Botanical Gardens. Texas Christian University is right across the river. New condo and townhouse developments are going up right in the district along Camp Bowie Boulevard.
