Denton: Music, Arts, Culture, Opportunity
Though it’s located at the north end of the DFW Metroplex along I-35 and the 288 Loop for easy access to all the amenities and attractions of both cities and their metro areas, Denton, TX is a world of its own little-city entertainment, enjoyment, excitement, and opportunity. It’s known for its thriving local music scene, its vibrant displays of arts and culture, its creative, small-town feel of community and fun—and is even sometimes referred to as a “mini-Austin”. But it’s also known for the rolling fields and endless acres of beautiful green pasture that comprise North Texas Horse Country, one of the largest concentrations of horse ranches in the country.
