Located 35 minutes northwest of Fort Worth at the intersection of U.S. Route 380 and Texas State Hwy 114, Bridgeport offers a great getaway destination. The city was named when a bridge “port” was built over the West Fork Trinity River to accommodate the Butterfield Stage Overland Mail Route. The town continued to flourish in industry with its vast amounts of earthen treasures, such as coal, oil, gas and limestone. Today Bridgeport offers a truly Texan experience with unique attractions, an array of local cuisine and a quaint shopping district. Designated as a Main Street City in 2006, visitors can enjoy Bridgeport’s history, along with the 13,000-acre Lake Bridgeport, more than 18,000 acres of the LBJ National Grasslands, the Northwest Off Highway Vehicle Park and much more.
