Celina has small town pride but a dream-big community. Celina is still growing but will be much bigger within the next ten years as the growth from the metroplex is being welcomed in. If you want to have some fun, come pack the stands with the whole town on Friday nights to get lost in a sea of orange, cheering, and hollerin' for our Celina High School football and sports teams. Hungry before the game? No problem, just go on down to Celina Square and enjoy a select group of diverse restaurants, whether it be ice cream, Tex-Mex, burgers, BBQ, or cajan food you're craving, we got something for you!

Celina has been so welcoming and open to myself and my family. The celebrations downtown are always lively and fun. The public library is resourceful and kind, and the neighbors are neighborly!
I love this quaint, little town! The community is great! Everybody is friendly and hospitable. The downtown is small but sweet. There are great restaurants and shops and the schools are great.
