Downtown Bryan

Young Professionals/Students

Texas A&M crosses the border between College Station and next door neighbor, Bryan. The distinction between the two isn’t significant to locals as there is not obvious border like a river or some other obvious geographical distinction. Many young professionals choose Historic Downtown Bryan as opposed to College Station due its arts scene, variety of restaurants and bars and more interesting boutique shopping and cafes. When you’re picturing living in a friendly walk score area with easy access to nightlife and work this should be the first place you look.

Students flock to the apartment buildings along University Drive in Northgate and College Heights just north of campus. That’s the main strip for the restaurants, bars and cafes that students hit up at night and on weekends. Also check out South of campus in Southside if you’re looking to be at a bit of a distance from the racket of the main social spots.

There are plenty of family-focused neighborhoods in College Station. If you’re into the golf club lifestyle then check out Pebble Creek. Large estates filled with beautiful oaks line the course in this master-planned community. The neighborhood has its own excellent grade school and is zoned for some of the best public schools in the area. If you want your kiddos to have an outdoor lifestyle, at home, in the woodlands and lakes, and at the clubhouse where there’s swimming, tennis, fitness and of course the golf.

If that’s not your scene check out the historic district, called Southside. Just south of A&M’s campus, it is filled with a collection of 50-100 year-old homes that both look built to part of the character of a great university and are close enough to feel like you’re part of a university neighborhood. Other than on game day the neighborhood is quiet and the historic homes are canopied by 100-year old oak trees that house those who want to truly live in the center of the city.
