The Complete College Station Experience

Family Vacation Itinerary

Begin your family vacation by settling into your accommodation and getting to know the local area. After unpacking, head out to The Junction Café for a leisurely breakfast to fuel up for the day ahead. Explore nearby attractions, whether it's a scenic park, a historic museum, or a quaint town center. In the afternoon, plan for an adventure that suits the whole family—perhaps a hike through a nature trail or a visit to a zoo. Take a break for lunch with a picnic in a picturesque spot. As the day winds down, enjoy a family dinner at a Brazos-Proper Texas Kitchen, sampling Texan cuisine. After dinner, take a leisurely stroll through campus to soak in the rich legacy that Texas A&M has to offer. 

Day One: Check-In

    • Four children are joyfully running along the edge of a pool at an outdoor setting with a stadium in the background.

    Make a Splash at the Pool

    This is one time where the best things to do with kids in College Station are also the easiest. After check-in, take to the pool! Our outdoor rooftop pool is what summer vacation dreams are made of. Watch your kids swim to their heart’s content as you relax in the sun or our private poolside cabanas.

    • A plate of salad with mixed greens, pecans, and cheese next to a fork and knife wrapped in a blue napkin, and a glass of amber-colored drink.

    Taste Texas Cuisine at Brazos-Proper Texas Kitchen

    Nestled in the heart of the Texas A&M campus, Brazos- PTK provides a unique dining experience rooted in delivering exceptional cuising and nurturing talent. Enjoy a light, local lunch dish or hearty, Texan cuisine!

    Stroll Through Campus

    Day Two: Adventure

      • A plate of pancakes topped with blueberries and cream, a glass of milk, and two children enjoying breakfast together in the background.

      Breakfast at Brazos-Proper Texas Kitchen

      Brazos- PTK does more than lunch and dinner! Whether you prefer a light or heart breakfast, Brazos offers something for everyone. Enjoy a light, savory Pulled Pork Egg Benedict or a sensationally sweeet Texas Griddle Cake topped with maple syrup and chocolate chips!

      • A person is feeding two giraffes with lettuce at a zoo or wildlife park, standing by a metal fence.

      Opt Outside

      Take advantage of the cool mid-morning by heading out on one of College Station’s many outdoor adventures. From Lake Bryan to the Aggieland Safari to one of many community parks, your kids will love exploring outside. Heading out in mid morning will also help you escape the heat of the afternoon.

      • The image shows an entrance of a building with a fountain in front, surrounded by multiple American flags on poles, and a domed structure in the background.

      Peruse an Area Museum

      For many parents, museums don’t exactly scream kid-friendly. College Station is different. Most museumsfeature interesting exhibits for all, whether you visit the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum or the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History. Kids will especially love the Children’s Museum of Brazos Valley.

      • The image shows a table with people enjoying a meal, featuring a bowl of tortilla chips with dips, a salad, drinks, and an appetizer on a wooden table.

      Dine at Block T Bar & Grill

      Freshen up, then treat your family to a mouthwatering meal at Block T Bar & Grill. Enjoy a picturesque view of Kyle Field on the terrace while enjoying hand-crafted, signature cocktails and crowd-pleasing American fare including signature steaks, burger, sandwiches, salads and shareable appetizers.

      Day Three: Head Home

        • The Junction Market and Cafe
