A few words about Bryan, Texas
I just moved to Bryan, Texas in June of 2005 to be near my sister and her family. It's a town of about 65,000, and it has the feel of a small town with many of the amenities of a larger city. College Station, the home of Texas A&M University, is right next door, so there are many cultural events offered through the university, some of them free. For example, just a couple of weeks ago, the Shanghai Quartet from China gave a concert; it was free to the public. And last month, the US Air Force band also gave a free concert. It was world-class entertainment.
I really like it here. People are friendly and helpful. Traffic isn't too bad. The town has a comprehensive growth plan that they revisit every five years that the public can contribute their input to. Housing is affordable. I just bought a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1750 sq. ft. house for $112,500. If I had stayed in Tucson, which is where I moved from, I would have had to spend more than $300,000 for that much house.
