Downtown is vibrant with hip shopping and local eateries all just steps from Denton’s crowning jewel, the Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square, one of Texas’ most photographed of all county courthouses.
Music is everywhere! More than 25 venues within walking distance of the downtown Square feature local singers, songwriters and bands. The world-class Murchison Performing Arts Center hosts orchestras, operas, and concertos. Every spring, visitors enjoy the Denton Arts & Jazz Festival where FUN IS THE THING and JAZZ IS KING! The 2½ day event is free to the public and offers 2,700 musicians, artists and performers to 220,000+ fans.
That’s not all… One of Denton’s most popular attractions is the North Texas Horse Country Tour, a wildly successful experience for all types of groups. Thousands have taken advantage of this unique attraction, winding their way through “Horse Country USA” among 450 premier horse farms and ranches excelling in every equine breed and discipline.With quality facilities and accommodations at affordable rates, what are you waiting for?
