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!

It's a nice place to live in terms of area and there isn't many people out here at the moment. That will change as the land starts getting built upon and sold. If you like starry skies, this is one of the biggest draws. There isn't much light pollution out here which means bring your telescope! One thing to note is the commute to the Dallas area. But other than that, it's great place to live.
Great small town community! Love the home town historic square and the family friendly Friday night market and activities. It's a Texas football town where Friday nights are spent at the high school football game and the town shuts down in support. Neighbors are warm and treat everyone like family.
