I am relatively new to LBK and I will be traveling to Denton. I would like to know the best route, with the most towns and areas to stop if need be.

There are two ways you can do this. One is take U.S. 82 eastward all the way to Wichita Falls, and then U.S. 287 southward until you get to Decatur. Once there, you can take U.S. 380 straight eastward and it will take you straight in. The other way is to take U.S. 84 southeastward to Post, and then east on U.S. 380. Straight shot to Denton once you leave Post.

Hope this helps.

That's easy. Just take 114 east out of Lubbock towards Idalou and keep going until you get to Bridgeport, at that point you will hit a 4 way light, go straight and you will then be on 380 which will take you right to I-35 and go right and you will be in Denton in less than 5 minutes. Watch out for deer between Dickens and Guthrie, and also hogs. Night time is the worst.

P.S. - the previous mentioned directions are way out of the way and might get ya lost going to Denton. 114 is straight and easy.

I'd probably just take U.S. 84E down to Roscoe then I-20 east to Fort Worth. The last time I went out through Idalou, Dickens, etc. my GPS had me in an open field at one point. However, I think that was the English lady on Tom-Tom who pronounced Lubbock as "Loobock" and Amarillo as "Amariyo." Anyway, at Fort Worth, take I-35 north to Denton.

I have family in east Texas and travel to the Lufkin area fairly often. I find the Interstate is boring but very efficient. Also no deer, hogs or tractors pulling implements in the road.

We make the drive from Lubbock to Denton a lot. This is the way to go. Seymour is the halfway point and has a sonic and dairy queen if you need a stop. I20 takes waaaay longer and Wichita Falls is out of the way. Going off the caprock is very scenic.

Probably drove Lubbock to Denton 30 times in the last couple decades. Tried every way there is, and this way is the least worst way to do it. Plan on a Blizzard in Seymour to break the drive and there ya go!

I-20 is okay if you are headed to Arlington, or FW, but if you are headed to Denton, it is *WAY* outta the way, and takes much longer than it will by going through Seymour. If you do the drive at night, watch out for feral hogs.
