Celina was the site of the first road in the country built exclusively for automobiles--the Celina Pike. Today, this community north of Dallas retains its small-town feel. The historic downtown plaza, at Walnut and Ohio streets, features a war memorial, shops and restaurants. The Celina Balloon Festival and Family Fun Day is held in October.
