Have been in this area for years. It’s a great place to raise a family. We have been blessed with awesome Godly leaders who have helped strengthen our faith. Awesome youth and kids ministries. Our schools are filled with awesome, helpful, caring, enthusiastic and charismatic teachers. Friendly communities and workplaces, not hard to find a job. You won't spend hours in traffic on the daily commute. Large enough to have the “city life” or live the Texas country life. If you’re an animal lover person, several pet parks and events through the year. Some of the yearly Texas reds festival!

Bryan, Texas has a small-town feel, but big-town opportunities. We are adjacent to College Station, home of Texas A&M University. As such, we have enormous support and ties with the University and all the cultural, academic, research and development that comes with a world class school. Our public and private schools are top-notch and we have an incredible homeschool community with so many options for classes, co-ops, sports, fine arts, and more, that students and families have a hard time deciding what to leave out! The community feel of Bryan, Texas with the pastoral countryside, various festivals, shows, concerts, and charity events, make it the best place to live in not only Texas, but the world!
Bryan is great town that offers many different events and activities. Like any town there are its good and bad parts, but for the most part it is a very safe place. Everyone in Bryan is very polite with a humble side. It is always great to interact with other citizens because of the friendliness within the community. Bryan's downtown district is one of the oldest parts to the town. It is truly something else because it looks as if it has not changed since it was build. With a great mix of 'mom and pop' shops that really make Downtown Bryan a unique experience for anyone!
