There's no place else I'd rather be! (Unfortunately life has taken me elsewhere, but I return as often as I can for a friendly "HOWDY!" and some fine southern hospitality!)

GREAT College Town. Lots to do if you are into sports, musical events, plays, or speeches. Everyone should come and visit. It also has the BEST Hobby/Toy store in Texas. HobbyTown USA. Great place for model trains, airsoft supplies, RC cars, RC Planes, RC Helis, games, board games, tabletop games, puzzles and much more! When you do visit College Station, stop by and see this GREAT store

I never thought I would leave my home town in the panhandle of Texas, but now that I have made College Station my new home, I wonder why it took me so long to get here. I have traveled through most of Texas and can verify that there is no friendlier place in the whole state! WHOOP!
