Denton is quiet, as the streets tend to be reasonably calm - although there are still several noisier sections, especially close to Interstate 35, Stemmons Freeway, the airport (Denton Municipal Airport) or one of the railway lines. Parks are distributed sporadically, which makes it rather challenging to reach them from most locations within the city. Despite that, there are around 40 public green spaces close by for residents to unwind in, like Airport Road Park and Quakertown Park.

Driving is very often the favored mode of transportation in this city. It is a reasonably short car ride to the closest highway, such as US Highway 77, from anywhere in Denton, and it is especially convenient to find a place to park.
