The Colony is a neighborhood in Anaheim, Calif. Highway 5 runs through the area, taking drivers to Los Angeles (which is about half an hour away) or south toward San Diego. Huntington Beach is just southwest of The Colony and is only a half hour drive away. Residents enjoy heading to the Pacific Ocean for a swim or into LA for a night out. However, The Colony itself is full of things to enjoy.

There are several parks in the area, which are perfect outdoor destinations. The average high temperatures in The Colony stay between 70 and 90 degrees, making outside recreation a popular activity for residents. Go for a bike ride through the picturesque streets or accompany friends to the park for a picnic. 

Several train lines run through The Colony, making it one of the more commuter-friendly areas in Orange County. 

The Colony is the oldest and largest part of Anaheim's historic district. The Historic Society takes residents and visitors on a variety of tours, including close looks at homes and a vineyard. 

Disneyland is directly south of The Colony and those who live in California can get a reduced cost seasonal pass. A day of Disney park fun can be just a train ride away from your apartment if you choose to live in The Colony.
