Last summer our family and I spent 3 days in Bryan, Texas. We choose Bryan, Texas because of the rich Texas history that the city portrays.

We stayed at the LaSalle Hotel at 120 South Main Street. The hotel was just beautiful. They have great amenities such as high speed internet and a club lounge complete with a full bar and amazing food. If you get a chance, you also might want to visit Barnhills Country Buffet at 1701 South Texas Ave. Great selection and the food is always fresh and delicious.

A must see in the city of Bryan is The Children's Museum of The Brazos Valley. There are lots of exhibits that the kids will love such as "The Bug" which is a real 1970 Super Beetle car that the kids can paint on and "The Upside Down Passage" that is a room where everything in it is upside down. The Texas Reds Festival occurs each June. I participated in The Grape Stomp which was so much fun. The kids enjoyed the Texas Reds Kid Zone where they loved the obstacle course and the fishing station. We went to visit Coulter Airfield but I have to say I was not impressed with it. My husband and my son, however, loved it. I guess I am just not an aviation enthusiast.

I highly recommend that if you are traveling on vacation in Texas that you visit Bryan.
