The northernmost town of the metroplex is Denton. Denton can be considered so many things. When I first moved to Texas, Denton was what I knew outside of Dallas. That’s because my prime reason for moving to Texas was to attend graduate school at the University of North Texas. Denton is definitely “one of a kind.” I can barely describe it. I will say this if you ever find yourself in this town, check out my alma mater at one of its home games and cheer the Mean Green on. FYI – Denton is home to two universities but it is not all about the college life here. You can definitely raise your family in this town. This is being said by a woman who grew up in a college town.
