Old Alton Bridge (aka Goatman's Bridge)
Only the bravest adventurers trek to the Old Alton Bridge. Rumor has it, the Goatman haunts this old rickety bridge in south Denton. Featured on the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures, Buzzfeed Unsolved and just local folklore, catch this sight…if you dare. (Ghost tours are available through Becks Ghost Hunters in the fall.)

In one of the most Denton-esque spots, no trip to Denton is complete without a visit to the Chairy Orchard. This empty lot houses hundreds of chairs of all shapes, sizes, and types, waiting for visitors to perch. Maintained by two neighbors who call themselves the Chairy Fairies, this is a great spot for an afternoon picnic, a photoshoot, or just a fun afternoon with friends and family.

The Purple Door
This outing is part scavenger hunt, part awesome selfie opportunity! In Denton, there is a door. It is purple. Your mission: find it and share with us your best selfie! We won’t give you an address. All we’ll tell you is it’s north of the Square. (Ask some locals, such as at the Discover Denton Visitor Center, if you get stumped!)
Texas Woman's University campus has many beautiful spots for photos. From their greenhouse and gardens to their Little Chapel-in-the-Woods the university grounds are prime for selfies. Be mindful of classes and private events using these spaces and be sure to check out TWU's parking website to locate free parking as many of the lots require permits.
