Colleyville is situated in the heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, within minutes of DFW International Airport, Colleyville offers the best of both worlds—big city amenities and sophistication, coupled with the laid-back, friendly atmosphere of a small town. It’s a combination that has made Colleyville a premier destination in which to live, work or play.
This small community’s big attributes have not gone unnoticed; Money magazine named Colleyville to its list of “100 Best Towns in America.” The choice is easy to understand. Colleyville Center, the heart of the city’s cultural community, boasts an array of artistic programs, while the city’s extensive trail system is a beacon for those that like to hike or bike. And Colleyville’s impressive amateur sports parks match any found outside a major league field.
In addition, the city’s shopping options are some of the best in the area. From upscale boutiques or luxurious spas to an epicurean oasis or a familiar farmers market, Colleyville has something for everyone.
Proximity to Dallas and Fort Worth, providing easy access to world-class museums, bustling business centers and professional sports of every kind, completes the list of the city’s attributes.
