Around Denton

The City of Denton is the quintessential North Texas county seat complete with the Downtown Courthouse and shopping district. A favorite spot among Dentonites, the Denton County Courthouse lawn is a place where locals and visitors alike stop to picnic, people watch, or play a game of Frisbee. Downtown, more commonly known as “The Square,” has many shops and restaurants to explore. Denton is also known for its live music scene. The New York Times has featured Denton for its “Indie scene with a Texas twang”.
