If you're looking for an apartment in an artistic community known for its great music scene and university-town feel, then you'll love living in Denton.
Denton apartments are located in Denton County, about 40 miles north of both Dallas and Fort Worth. Its rural location and relative isolation from the region's two major metropolitan cities, combined with the presence of two prestigious universities and a large student population, have made Denton a highly desirable enclave for artists and intellectuals.
When you rent an apartment in Denton, you'll have your finger on the pulse of a fast-beating music scene. To say that residents are passionate about the arts is an understatement. Locals actively seek to preserve their culture -- restaurants, clubs, art studios, stages -- from the hands of developers. One restaurant owner even chained himself to his building to protest redevelopment on historic Fry Street. Denton's musical legends include Nora Jones, Don Henley and the late Roy Orbison. Yet the city has also made national headlines for being the cradle of indie rock. Move over Austin, Denton is turning out brilliant new performers such as Grammy-nominated Bowling for Soup and former University of North Texas jazz musicians, Midlake, who appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and have toured with the Flaming Lips.
Denton apartments are popular with students. The city is home to the University of North Texas, which has the third largest undergraduate enrollment in the state, and Texas Women's University, the largest public university in the nation that is primarily for women. There are many campus-sponsored events, public lectures and performances. And, taken together with the community's many festivals -- Denton Air Fair (an old-fashioned air show), Dog Days of Denton (a celebration of all-things dog) and the North Texas State Fair & Rodeo -- you'll never be at a loss for something to do.
