Welcome to Bryan-College Station
'Welcome to Aggieland.' Texas A&M University is the reason for being, not only for College Station but for neighboring Bryan, which was long ago subsumed into one metro area. Each school year the town's combined permanent population gets a whopping 46,000 student boost. Then all the businesses on College Station's main drag, University Blvd, really bustle.
However, even if you don't wear maroon-colored underwear (the Aggie color), you'll likely love downtown Bryan, which is walkable and lined with some excellent restaurants and bars.
