Named after the historic Peters' Colony settlement, some portions of the land for the city were purchased from descendants of the county's first settlers, who came here in the 1840s. Today, this growing city sits on the eastern shore of Lewisville Lake, just 35 minutes from downtown Dallas and 25 minutes from the DFW Airport.
The Colony is home to several golf courses. The courses at the Tribute Golf Links and Guest House and The Old American Golf Club were among Golf Magazine's top five in Texas in 2010. Stewart Peninsula Golf Course also offers challenging play and lake views.
The Colony has 23 miles of shoreline along Lewisville Lake, making it one of the city's main attractions. Hidden Cove Park offers a marina, RV and camping sites, boating, swimming, water skiing and fishing. www.marinequest.net/hiddencovepark.
Events include the Bow-Wow Pow-Wow festival in September and Pirate Days in October.
