Welcome to Denton

welcomeThere are so many great things happening here in Denton, we can’t help but be excited about introducing you to our city. We want you to like it here, too! We hope our Denton section will give you an overview of all the exciting choices Denton offers.

With a history of gunfighters, historical landmarks and Texas Longhorn cattle grazing amid modern shopping centers and skyscrapers, Denton combines historic interest with thriving community life.

Denton is the county seat of Denton County. It is a unique city offering the best of two worlds. Located just north of Dallas and Fort Worth at the connecting points of Interstate Highways 35E and 35W, Denton is at the summit of one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the nation. This convenient location is less than 30 minutes from the DFW Regional Airport and within an hour of any of the numerous attractions of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

The atmosphere in Denton is quiet and peaceful…but can also boast of two major state universities and every kind of benefit of the “big city.” There are plenty of things to see and do in Denton. However, one can also enjoy the “metroplex attractions”; then hop back up to Denton for a quiet evening meal and a peaceful night’s sleep…away from all the noise, crowds and high costs. All in all, Denton is an upbeat and growing city in a setting of serene neighborhoods and natural beauty…an enviable position for any community.
