Raise your hand if you think spring is the best season of the year. If your hand is down, chances are you have yet to visit Texas A&M University or College Station between the months of March and May. If you had, you’d be waving your hand in the air simply because you care a lot for the events and attractions that make this pretty piece of Texas so unique.
Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of College Station in the spring is the Texas A&M campus itself. While it’s true that Texas A&M is one-of-a-kind in the fall (we have Gameday to thank for that), its true magic comes to light throughout the spring. The Century Tree is green as can be, as is the surrounding vegetation on the Academic Plaza. Students crowd Aggie Park and other open spaces throughout the campus along with fellow College Station locals and springtime travelers.
Even beyond the buzz in the air, though, Texas A&M offers a spring experience unique to other Texas towns. Throughout the spring, you’ll experience a little bit of Aggie athletics, a little bit of true Texas flowers, and a little bit of the spirit Texas A&M is known for, each of which takes shape just outside our front door. Discover four things everyone should experience during a springtime stay at Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center.
WILDFLOWER VIEWING AREAS
The bluebonnet is the official flower of the state of Texas, and come spring it’ll be crystal clear as to why. Wildflowers, and most notably bluebonnets, cover nearly every square inch of untended grassland in the state--especially in Brazos Valley. You’ll know its bluebonnet season when all your Texan friends suddenly sing the praises of this iconic wildflower. However, bluebonnets aren’t necessarily a free reign flower.
All Aggie’s have something in common. It’s more than the maroon and white, more than the hymns and chants and traditions, more than the Fightin’ Texas Aggie athletics, and more even than having spent four years in the friendliest college town in the country. What all Aggie’s have is a stake in a centuries-old legacy. This is what the Muster is intended to celebrate.

Spring is the season to be outside, and for more reasons than just the vibrant bluebonnets. The weather is ideal and the humidity, while present, is not oppressive. Though College Station is surrounded by parks and trails perfect for walking, biking, and hiking, there’s also something special about lounging beside the swimming pool.
