College Station: A College Town and Beyond
College Station is a city in East-Central Texas at the center of a region known as the Texas Triangle. The city is located just 90 miles northwest of Houston. It has been named one of the most educated cities in the United States by Money magazine. Nicknamed “Aggieland” in reference to nearby Texas A&M University’s Aggies, much of College Station’s economic and social activities are centered around the university. Consistently maintaining one of the lowest crime rates in the state of Texas, College Station is safe and family-friendly, making it a location geared towards demographics other than college students. For example, College Station Independent School District has been awarded a number of regional and national awards. The city is home to Post Oak Mall, Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater, The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, and the lively Northgate District. Outdoor enthusiasts will love exploring the city’s 52 public parks with over 60 miles of bike trails, basketball and tennis courts, swimming pools, dog parks, picnic areas, and playgrounds. When you’re ready for a vacation, you will have easy access to Easterwood Airport, George Bush International Airport, the Union Pacific Railroad line, and several major highways.
