About Bryan/College Station

Posted by LaShane K. Eaglin on

Bryan/College Station is a flourishing community located in the heart of east central Texas. Also known as “Aggieland,” it is home to Texas A&M University, the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, a variety of festivals and special events and a wider selection of outstanding restaurants than you’ll find in any other community its size.


Stroll through historic downtown Bryan to sample a colorful array of shops and galleries in lovingly restored 19th and early 20th century buildings. You’ll find vibrant crafts, arts, and one-of-a-kind items throughout the area. 


Just west of the Texas A&M University campus is the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, with a remarkable historical collection of documents and photos. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5:00 p.m.


The campus of Texas A&M University is a great place to stroll. You’ll find the visitors’ center just inside Rudder Tower. It is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.


Messina Hof Winery, a short drive east of Bryan, welcomes visitors any time. You can walk through the vineyards, enjoy the views or relax in the tasting room.


There are many other places to visit, including the Children’s Museum (in downtown Bryan), the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History (in the Brazos Center on Briarcrest Drive, just east of  Highway 6), the horticultural gardens at Texas A&M, and the Arts Council exhibit hall (on DartmouthStreet in College Station).
