A growing number of retail shops and neighborhood services are calling the Near Southside home. Fort Worth residents often identify the prevalence of locally-owned and “unchained” businesses as one of the area’s most appealing attributes. Beyond our unique retail shops, the district offers a wide range of specialty service providers, such as cutting edge salons and fitness centers. Several of the area’s most recognizable landmarks also serve as perfect settings for special celebrations and events.
