Texas A&M’s campus is the heart of Bryan College Station, making it a great place to start if you’ve never been here before. There’s nowhere better to start than Kyle Field, the school’s hallowed ground for football and one of the biggest stadiums in the country. On game days you’ll be in the midst of more than 100,000 people tailgating, sightseeing, and preparing to root for the boys in maroon. While you’re on campus, don’t miss the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Featuring thousands of artifacts and pieces of memorabilia from the life and presidency of George H.W. Bush, as well as broader subjects, the museum is a world-class addition to the A&M experience.
For all its tradition, the A&M campus is not the only place in Bryan College Station where the past meets the present. The Benjamin Knox Gallery, where the eponymous artist serves up Aggie-centric paintings and hand-picked wines, is housed inside the old College Station train depot that gave rise to the city’s name in 1877. Head to the Old Bryan Marketplace in historic downtown Bryan to shop for carefully curated new and vintage items for the home or office. If ancient history is what you want to see, visit the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History. The museum provides up-close looks at incredible dinosaur and Ice Age fossils, dozens of live and taxidermied animals, priceless artifacts, and other wonders.
Add to all this the beautiful outdoor spaces like Lake Bryan and Bryan College Station’s 90-plus parks, local wineries and breweries, cool stores, and countless other attractions, and you’ve got the makings of a terrific tourist destination.
Visit today and experience the Spirit of Aggieland for yourself.
