Bryan-College Station

Bryan-College Station Report
The cities of Bryan and College Station are another of Texas' "twin cities" (like Dallas-Fort Worth and Midland-Odessa), side-by-side cities that have grown together over the years and now are rarely mentioned one without the other.

Bryan is at the site where Texas colonists following Stephen F. Austin settled in the early 1820s. College Station has grown up around Texas A&M University, the oldest public university in Texas.

And Texas A&M is the centerpiece of life in Bryan-College Station. The university's athletic teams are followed with fanaticism in these parts, especially the football team. Athletic events on campus are frequent and visitors can usually find a game of some sort to attend.

The university is home to the area's airport, and features several museums and a horticultural center open to the public. One of the newest features at Texas A&M is the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, which collects personal and official papers and memorabilia from the life of President George H.W. Bush.

The Brazos Valley Historical Museum is a popular stop, as is the Children's Museum of the Brazos Valley. Both are in Bryan. The Carnegie Center of Brazos Valley History in Bryan is housed in the restored Carnegie Library.

The area all around Bryan and College Station is criss-crossed by streams and creeks and wooded parks, making fishing, hunting and camping popular activities.
