If you enjoy the small-town, wholesome atmosphere of a city and still want shopping and entertainment nearby then be sure to check out Celina, Texas. Located on State Highway 289 and Farm Road 455, Celina has easy access to Frisco just 12 miles south and McKinney 15 miles southeast for dining, theater and shopping.
Established in 1879 as a rural farming community Celina has experienced growth recently and evolving into a lager, urban community. However, the small-town feel is still prevalent; the excellent schools are small, the neighbors friendly, new-comers feel welcome and long-time residents are involved in the growth.
Neighbors gather regularly throughout the year in the historic downtown square for community events such as the annual Easter egg hunt, Christmas tree lighting and the Fun Day festival in September. And of course there is Friday night football and the annual homecoming parade, kick-off parade or celebration parade of the beloved Celina Bobcats.
This is a fun, friendly town and a great place to make home.
