Much like the name suggests, this Texas city practically defines the phrase "college town." Home to one of the most renowned institutions in the state (Texas A&M University), this small city's existence is a result of the first railroad through the area. The 2006 issue of Money magazine ranked College Station as the most educated city in Texas (and the 11th most educated in the U.S.), making it an intellectual center of the region. Although this city is surrounded by vast farmlands and prairies, it's conveniently located within close proximity to three of the 10 largest cities in the United States, including Houston, Dallas and San Antonio. For this reason, College Station is known as one of the Lone Star State's cultural focal points, especially since sports like football are an integral part of Texas tradition.
Visitors of College Station can easily get enough sports entertainment to satisfy even the most avid fans. Although Texas A&M's football team is one of the nation's most successful, the university is also home to other sports like basketball, volleyball, soccer, track and field, tennis, softball and hockey. Racing enthusiasts can also have their fair share of fun at College Station's Texas World Speedway, which features several annual events. Those who would rather participate in games that are a little more leisurely, such as golfers, can take advantage of the popular Texas A&M Traditions Club. Anyone who has several children to entertain can still include sports in the agenda at Grand Station Entertainment, which is one of the largest bowling centers in the state.
There are also plenty of nearby attractions for tourists who wish to get a taste of Lone Star State culture. The university area offers several art galleries and museums, horticulture gardens and the Messina Hof Winery and Resort. There are many nearby venues that feature live and authentic Texas music, such as Fitzwilly's Bar and Grill, Hurricane Harry's and O'Bannon's Taphouse, making this an excellent location for anyone who wants to get his or her groove on and sample a little country music or blues.
Visitors might also be surprised to discover how delicious local foods are. Not only is the area popular when it comes to Texas-style barbecue and Mexican food, but it's also known for the home-raised beef. Anyone who wants to experience the influences that drive the state as a whole will surely enjoy their time at College Station.
