Bryan is usually pretty warm all year, it does get cold in the winter sometimes, but not often. I recommend packing shorts, t-shirts and maybe some light weight pants, just in case. It does rain often in the spring and fall, but not very much in the summer. Bryan does have its own lake, Lake Bryan, On the city's northwest side is a good place to camp, fish, boat, hike, or ride bikes, and there are electrical outlets for people with RVs.
Breezin' Through Bryan-A Memorial Day Weekend
"Sister Towns: Bryan and College Station, Texas"
Although listed separately on virtual tourist, these two Brazos Valley towns hold the joint name of Bryan-College Station, Texas and were founded a decade apart by Stephen F. Austin settlers in the early 1800's. They developed into the communities they are today because of their ties to Texas A & M University.
It was Memorial Day when we walked the Main Street of Bryan, finding just about every store "locked up with the shades down" so to speak. The area appeared to be nicely restored and we would have liked to have visited some of the shops and historic buildings to get a better 'flavor' of the town. However, what we saw we noted and appreciated.
While in Bryan, we stayed at a very hospitable Bed and Breakfast, dined at an appealingly historic restaurant that offered international cuisine, were invited to visit the Brazos Valley Natural History Museum after hours and made the short drive to College Station, where we gave ourselves a self-guided tour of Texas A&M campus and the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library.
Although not a good day to explore Bryan's old buildings, it was a good day to take photos.

First of all, Howdy Aggs!!! Ok, Ive lived in Bryan all my life, and probably will until im done with college in a few years. Bryan is a nice sized city with about 66,000 residents, and has a sister city to the south, College Station, which is adjacent to Bryan with a population just above Bryan's, for the first time. The area has a total population of 152,114 people. Any new aggies, or college students that are in, or move to the area must check out Northgate which is just across the Bryan city limit in College Station, you dont know what you are missing until you eat at Dixie Chicken. And of course, the most popular color in town is Maroon. Ok, enough of me talking on, and on. Gig' Em
