Looking for apartments in apartments in Denton, TX?
Denton, Texas, seat of Denton County, is just north of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex where Interstate 35E and 35W intersect. Obviously crucial to North Texas transportation, this city of more than 100,000 has a population density of 1,329 persons per square mile, plenty of room for development.
Denton is informally a "college town," home of two major research universities, University of North Texas and Texas Woman's University. This partially explains why the average age for the city is 33.1 years, compared with 37.6 years nationally. Students make up more than half of the city's population.
Needless to say, quiet may be hard to come by in this college town, but apartments are certainly plentiful. (For real peace and quiet, try the Oaks apartments, next to the IOOF cemetery; guaranteed noiseless neighbors.)
Denton is also becoming known for its music scene. The city hosts the North By 35 music festival, followed a week later by the famous South By Southwest Music and Media Conference (SXSW) in Austin.
Denton Independent School District (DISD) "is the second fastest-growing school district in North Texas," according to the city, and has more than 23,000 students.
