Finding an Apartment in Denton, TX
Finding an apartment in Denton, TX, should present very few problems; there are a wealth of options in mid-rise to smaller buildings with a variety of amenities including pools, workout rooms -- even sand volleyball courts so you can pretend you're at the beach. The apartment lifestyle reaches new heights in this decidedly student-oriented community of about 125,000 people that is located about as close to Oklahoma City as it is to Dallas.
It has a personality all its own. It is proud of its reputation as a college town, which it has been almost since it was established in 1866. The railroad arrived soon after, but it was the founding of the University of North Texas in 1890, and of Texas Woman's University in 1901, that gave it the personality it still has today. Apartments in Denton are available, affordable and everywhere. Many, of course, are close to campus; but there are also popular communities nearer to the urban center, conveniently located near the redeveloped city square, and in outlying areas with a more rural ambience. Rents and floor plans are varied as well, ranging from student budget units to decidedly luxurious -- it's all there for you.
The Top Neighborhoods in Denton, TX
Students tend to congregate in areas close to campus: The East University Drive area is comprised of mainly smaller units, studio to one- or two-bedroom units in mid-rise buildings. Vacancy rates run from 12 to 14% in this area, so you should have little trouble locating a suitable lease. Other popular neighborhoods in Denton include the City Center area, with a mix of housing from studio apartments to four-bedroom units. The attraction of this area is, at least in part, its walkability, and the appeal of the rebuilt and newly-vibrant downtown area. Denton County stretches in all directions from the city itself, and a number of newer developments are also located a bit further from the town itself, offering additional options for those looking for rentals with a Denton address. Robson Ranch is an adult community located south of the city; it has only single family homes, but there are usually quite a number for lease, and the golf course and community activities make it a desirable place to live.
Dining in Denton, TX
Casual is the name of the game in this friendly community with more than its share of great, easy-on-the-budget eateries. Many of them are clustered around the square, and you'll have to pick your own favorites from among Hannah's Off the Square, which may be pricier than most, Thai Ocha, Yummy's, Giuseppe's Italian, the Greenhouse, and Seven Mile Cafe for breakfast. Other favorites are farther afield, but worth a trek for the fare they serve: Try J Sushi Japanese Restaurant, Rooster's Roadhouse, or Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q. As you would expect in a college town, food is one of the best values you'll find, so if you don't like to cook, you'll love living in Denton.
