College Station is more than just Aggie country. Leave the front doors of Valencia’s new hotels The George or Cavalry Court, opening in fall 2016, and you’ll find excitement within a half-hour, no matter which way you walk.

[North] Hurricane Harry’s

3-minute walk

Classic Texas fun on a student budget, this lively country bar’s two large dance floors are College Station’s premier place to strut your two-step skills or enjoy a rotating lineup of regional and national musicians.

[South] Kyle Field

25-minute walk

This is the 100,000-seat home of the Aggies’ three-time national champion football program, which cranks out future National Football League stars on an annual basis. It’s one of the liveliest stadiums in the sport, and even when it stands empty, you’ll be able to get out on the field and practice your patter in the announcers’ booth during daily guided tours.

[East] Café Eccell

18-minute walk

This upscale café and lounge goes where most college town bars wouldn’t dare, serving up ceviche, ahi tuna nachos, and lamb, in addition to riffs on classic Texas comfort food, wood-fired pizza, and brunch. It’s also worth planning a trip around just the regular brewers’ dinners, which match locally brewed pints with inventive cuisine.

[West] Mo’s Irish Pub

3-minute walk

Located inside the new luxury shopping center in Century Square, Mo’s eschews over-the-top Irish trappings in favor of a straightforward pub where you can rest your elbows on the bar, sip good whiskey, and catch some live music. Come game day, spicy Jameson-glazed burgers and a wall of flat-screen TVs make Mo’s the best place to watch the Aggies if you’re not in the stands.
