The Colony is a city in Denton County, Texas, and a suburb of Dallas. The Colony was named the Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary Sports Town of The United States in 2003.. The Grandscape development, anchored by Nebraska Furniture Mart, is driving a new development boom in the city. Located on the southeast side of the city, across Sam Rayburn Tollway from the larger part of the city, is Austin Ranch, a mixed-use development consisting of retail businesses, apartments and condominiums. The Colony is located inside both the Lewisville Independent School District and Little Elm Independent School District. The city is bordered on the west by Lewisville Lake and the city of Lewisville, on the north and east by Frisco, and on the south by the cities of Carrollton and Plano. Approximately 23 miles of shoreline on Lewisville Lake (including two peninsulas) are contained within the city's boundaries, thus providing the basis for the city's nickname "City by the Lake." In 2013 Money Magazine lists The Colony as No. 20 in its Top 50 Best Places to Live lists The Colony as No. 20 in its Top 50 Best Places to Live.
