Presidential Corridor: Bryan-College Station Professional Review and Guide
"Bryan–College Station is one of the largest educational centers in the state. Part of the drive is nicknamed the Presidential Corridor because it links Austin’s LBJ Library with Bryan–College Station’s Bush Library. Home of Texas A&M University, these adjoining communities are home to over 123,000 residents and several attractions to interest travelers.
Bryan was chartered in 1855, located in the area where early colonists led by Stephen F. Austin first settled. Agriculturally rich, the city still has an emphasis on farming thanks to Texas A&M University, the first public institution of higher learning in Texas. The college is well known for its agricultural, veterinary, and engineering programs as well as its military Cadet Corps. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Austin. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
