Evening on Lake Texoma

#1. Lake Texoma

About an hour north of Celina is Lake Texoma. This a great little lake, well, it's not necessarily little, is great for fishing, swimming, and boating. You can also hike around the lake, bike on many of the trails, or explore some of the 50 parks that completely surround the lake itself. It's a great place to go camping or just explore for the day. In addition to camping and biking, there are resorts and hotels, cabin rentals, horse trails, several marinas, cruises and charters, golfing, fantastic restaurants, hunting, even casinos and annual events. Take a look at what's going on laketexomaonline.com for all the amazing activities and things to do in this Texas location.

Canton Texas

#2. Canton Texas

About 2 hours southeast of Celina is Canton Texas. This unique Texas town is known for First Monday Trade Days, home of the world-famous and largest flea market in America. They have year-round festivals, attractions, shopping, and more but the flea market is definitely the highlight of this unique town. The Monday Trade Days happens on the first Monday of the month so make sure that you schedule your trip around this date. Thursday through Sunday before the first Monday of each month, America's largest fleamarket offers some of the most exciting, cutting-edge furnishings, antiques, and collectibles anywhere in the country. The flea market has been around for over 150 years featuring thousands of vendors from across the country offering a shoppers paradise where you'll find some rare collectibles, furnishings, decorations, arts and crafts, produce, jewelry, and much, much more. But of course, you can check out Canton Texas any other time of the month for festivals and activities going on year-round.

Sundance Square

#3.  Sundance Square

While it's not too far away, you will want to spend several hours in Sundance Square. It's touted as one of the top things to do in downtown Fort Worth and recognized as one of the top downtown developments in the United States. Sundance Square spans 35 blocks in downtown Fort Worth with over 30 places to eat, a unique collection of stores, boutiques, live music, theater, comedy, and Bass Performance Hall. This is definitely one of the best places to shop, dine, and enjoy theater and entertainment in all of Fort Worth. One trip certainly will not cover it all.

Waco Texas

#4. Waco Texas

About 2 1/2 hours south of Celina is Waco Texas. From delicious barbecue to friendly neighbors, Baylor University and the famous Magnolia Market & Silos, there's plenty to do, experience, and see in Waco Texas. Magnolia Market has definitely put Waco Texas on the map in a good way. Designed and run by HDTV's Fixer Upper Chip and Joanna Gaines, the Magnolia Market is an essential part of your trip to Waco. It's located at the base of two historic silos and covers over 2 acres. You'll find wonderful home decor, delicious food, food trucks, gardening supplies, or hang out under the wooden tepee and enjoy a picnic on the lawn. If you visit Magnolia Market on the first and third Wednesday of the month from June through August you can stock up on locally grown produce and other local goods.
