Review of Bryan, Texas

different place compared to ten years ago
Star Rating - 2/5/2012
I returned to the Bryan area after living here ten years ago. The area has not changed for the positive at all. The crime rate has risen, housing is not afforadable unless you want to live more inside inner city Bryan(higher crime rate), and the utilities have gone up considerably in price. In addition, the job market is no longer growing unless you have some great networks on the campus or really know someone. All the growth now is in south College Station and that equals having some big bucks to pay more for the expensive homes. Basically Bryan is no longer a place to live for a cheap lifestyle.

Yes, the area is growing with more restaurants and two movie theaters but lacks a market for single professionals in their late twenties to forties range. Basically, everyone has to go outta of town to do anything unless it is a game weekend.
