Awesome. Different. Fun. That's Denton, Texas in our own original, independent style. Just 35 miles north of Dallas/Fort Worth in the heart of the North Texas Horse Country, Denton is a thriving university city that's drawn creative, artistic, inventive minds and entrepreneurial spirits for more than 150 years.
Downtown Denton is vibrant. Hip shopping, live music, and local eateries electrify the ambience day and night in the shadow of Denton's crowning jewel, the Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum, one of Texas' most photographed of all county courthouses. Within easy distance around Denton's walkable downtown are museums like the Firefighter Museum and the Historical Park of Denton County where the Bayless-Selby House and African American Museums invite visitors to experience the stories, people, and character that shaped this indie spirit haven.
Music is everywhere from over 25 live venues downtown to orchestra and opera at the world-class Murchison Performing Arts Center. The Center for the Visual Arts plays host to art shows featuring mediums from painting and photography to textile and sculpture. And the art doesn't end there! The Campus Theatre casts the finest Texas talent in a variety of productions year-round.
