“Denton, Texas has everything you could want from a big city, while still holding on to that small- town vibe.” With a population around 140k, Denton is appropriately nicknamed “Little Austin” and is located on the northern edge of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. The cowboy culture is ripe in Denton, having hosted the annual North Texas State Fair and Rodeo since 1928. Home of the largest community garden, the population of Denton is diverse and welcoming. Their DART rail system makes traveling between Denton, Dallas and Fort Worth very convenient. The flat terrain of the city is located on top of the Barnett Shale, a geological formation considered to contain natural gas. There is also a man-made reservoir, Lewisville Lake, located 15 miles south of the city. The climate is humid subtropical, with hot, humid summers that can average between 91 and 96 degrees Fahrenheit, and cool winters, with daily lows being in the 30s. The area does see snow, averaging about 2.4 inches per year. If you don’t mind the heat, own a cowboy hat, and love the small-town vibe in the big city, Medical City Denton may be the right choice for you.
