Dubbed “City by the Lake” for its scenic setting on the east side of Lewisville Lake, The Colony is a Dallas suburb of approximately 39,400 residents. Take a quick 30-minute drive south and you can find yourself right in the heart of downtown Dallas! In September of 2012, the Nebraska Furniture Mart was built along side of State Highway 121 and has brought millions of visitors annually to The Colony since its opening in May 2015. Falling inside both the Lewisville Independent School District and Little Elm Independent School District, the former includes six elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. Whereas the latter consists of one K-8 STEM Academy which is in The Tribute subdivision. The Colony has been designated both a Tree City USA and a Playful City USA with plenty of trails and green space allowing for many kinds of outdoor activities. Along with the multitude of golf courses, one of The Colony’s newest attractions is their Top Golf sports facility. The growing city is also home to a variety of big firms which their headquarters allow for many job opportunities. Having the best of both worlds, the beautiful “City by the Lake” continues to bloom!
