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!
Review Bryan
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!
Growing up here in Bryan, Texas gives me an advantage to this town knowledge. It is a cute town, has a downtown area that host a "First Friday" on the first Friday of every month. It's basically a bunch of our local artist gather down there with cool things for the family and kids to do. Lots of nice spots to eat, drink, and relax around town, especially in the downtown area. The reason I am giving this town 3 stars is that of the schools here. They are low par school's that could do much better! I remember going to the schools when I was younger and it was not a very safe environment. Bryan has a high high-school dropout rate that is very disappointing. It is a great town to visit, not so much to live in if you're not originally from here.
