Star Rating 8/7/2010
Positive Note: No traffic, everything within reach. Good schools.

Negative Note: I have lived in Austin and Houston. I recently moved to College Station. In a decent area (not a posh area) the mortgage price and taxes are equal in comparison to Austin and Houston. This website indicate that mortgage price are very low compared to Austin and Houston- that is incorrect. The energy cost is little higher. City has very few and low profile art, music, weekend outings, exhibitions going on. There are very few high rated restaurants and the ones over there are pricey and overrated. Water tastes odd in College Station, so many of us buy water from grocery store on regular basis.

End Remarks: A dull city without unique character. I wasn't very thrilled to stay in College Station.
