I have heard a lot of great things about Denton! That is where I visited briefly and it seems so relaxing. I am just worried that it is a bit too far from the bigger cities. We drove to Dallas during non-rush hour, and I remember it taking close to a half-hour, is that about right?

Yeah, that's about right. It's well over an hour in rush hour traffic, though. Everything up that way is growing so fast, though, it's turning into one big city. I remember when there was a lot of open land between Denton and Dallas (really, not that long ago) but now you can barely tell when you leave one city and enter another. I would imagine that in ten more years it will be completely built up.

I can see that for sure. I grew up in Northern California and I watched cities "stitch" together over a short decade!

Is Austin mostly for the single crowd? I have been reading other threads and that seems to be the general vibe. Is there anyone who lives in the Austin area who is raising a family and can tell me about it?
