I've been living in this area for over 25 years. The houses are not all cookie cutter and have a definite uniqueness to each of them. Have plenty of diversity and not much crime. Much has been done to improve streets and parks. Quick access to local lake.

Denton is a great place to live. This is very unique town with a small town feeling and a very diverse range of people in this area. We are close enough to Dallas or Ft. Worth that you can go there for events but not have to live in the big city. Denton has many unique areas with many music events throughout the year.
With Denton getting larger in the past few years, there seems to be some crime that you hear about now , where as in the past you never heard of crime problems in this area.
