Celina has experienced the fifth fastest population growth rate in the Dallas Fort Worth area over the past three years suburbs. Some of the ways Celina is different from and similar to other Dallas area cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Celina is located in northwest Collin County, approximately 42 miles north of downtown Dallas and 61 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Celina's proximity to DFW International Airport, both the Las Colinas and north Dallas business centers, and downtown Dallas is likely to make Celina residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
