Home is Where the Howdy is
First Fridays in Bryan. “Soon-to-be famous” chicken fingers at Layne’s. (Very) late night slices at Antonio’s Pizza. Five dollar flicks at The Queen Theatre. Dominoes at the Dixie Chicken. Discover a new — or old — part of town. Make it your own. Then do it all again next weekend.
The twin cities of Bryan and College Station have served as the adopted hometown for generations of Aggies. Both cities have grown exponentially as Texas A&M University continues to thrive as a welcoming, diverse community.
Bryan-College Station boasts more than 90 public parks, the 1,000-acre recreational Lake Bryan and the Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater for outdoor concerts and multi-cultural events. There are a variety of museums and many area attractions, including Santa’s Wonderland, BigShots Golf Aggieland, Messina Hof Winery, the Brazos Valley African-American Museum, Children’s Museum, Natural History Museum and the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the Texas A&M campus.
College Station was ranked within the top 25 by Travel + Leisure for Best Places to Live in the U.S.
and, along with Bryan, provides students and families with an exceptional place to live, learn, shop and relax. Aggieland is on the rise, too, as College Station was ranked No. 20 in the United States’ fastest-growing cities in 2020.
You’ll find a small-town feel with all the amenities of a large city: multiple shopping centers, entertainment districts, breweries, boutique shops, national chains and a shopping mall. Bryan-College Station is home to several unique, locally-owned restaurants built and ran by Brazos Valley natives and every national chain you could want.
