Denton puts it all together

Here in Denton, the mix is entirely new. Take one part traditional Texas horse country, one part cutting-edge college town with an impressive music scene and blend in equal parts appealing family environment with strong employment, easy-to-like neighborhoods and quality schools.

Vibrant employment and higher education

Big name employers that call Denton home include Peterbilt Motors and the headquarters of Sally Beauty Supply International, plus manufacturers United Copper, Thermadyne, Acme Brick and Jostens.

Denton is the regional center for healthcare, including Texas Health Presbyterian of Denton and Denton Regional Medical Center. So it's no surprise that Denton's Texas Women's University (TWU) has the largest doctoral nursing program and the fifth-largest nursing program in the United States.

Another employment segment that is expected to grow is aerospace/aviation, centering on the Denton Airport, which is estimated to have a $58.4 million impact on the region each year.

What's missing

For a city that has almost everything – from lively local culture and great jobs to high-quality healthcare – what’s missing in Denton is exciting new retail nearby.
