Fun things to do in Bryan-College Station, Texas

July 27, 2011

Even if you’re not into the sports life of Texas A&M, there are lots of ways to have fun in Bryan-College Station, Texas. Here are a few suggestions for enjoying summer in our city:

  1. Summer Movie Clubhouse: Cinemark is offering family movies every week during the summer for just $1 per show. You can also buy a 10-show punch card for only $5. See great hits like “Kung Fu Panda”, “Madagascar 2”, and “Monsters vs. Aliens” for a ridiculously low price!
  2. Splash Pads: On a hot day, there’s nothing like cooling off in a fountain. A Splash Pad makes it even better. Ground nozzles spurt water from below, so there’s no standing water. A water bucket fills up and splashes down on willing participants. Bryan-College Station has three splash pads: in Tanglewood Park, Lincoln Center, and Tiffany Park. It’s cool fun for all ages.
  3. Tanglewood Park: And speaking of parks, Tanglewood Park is a great destination for an outing. With several covered pavilions, three playgrounds, a sand volleyball court, tennis court, barbecue grill, walking trails, and lots of picnic tables—plus the aforementioned Splash Pad—Tanglewood Park is ideal for any gathering.
  4. First Friday: The first Friday of the month is always cause for celebration in Bryan. Downtown Bryan merchants serve up an evening of entertainment—including a movie in the park, live music, art exhibits, crafts demonstrations, and more.
  5. Great dining: No more your taste and budget, you’ll find exactly the eatery to appease your appetite. From ethnic to organic, deli to gourmet, it’s all here. And the newest addition to our menu of restaurants is BJ’s Brewhouse, currently under construction. BJ’s is renowned for its own brews, balanced with an equally palate-pleasing array of food choices.

The one thing you won’t find in Bryan-College Station is boredom. We love living and working here, and welcome the opportunity to build a home so you can live and work here, too. Contact us at Stylecraft Builders for more reasons to relocate to this fast-growing area of Texas, where the economy is strong and living is so affordable!

Big fish, small pond

July 20, 2011

The Siena community in Bryan, Texas, isn’t just a nice place to live. It also boasts a pretty good fishing hole. Leslie Abbott and her family moved into their Stylecraft Builders’ new home last August. Since then, they have been enjoying the fishing pond, which was stocked with 500 catfish and 200 perch a few months back.

Leslie sent us a photo and told us about her recent catch, a big catfish:

“That was one of the biggest we have caught so far. Threw him back, of course. Next year, he’s dinner! Rick and I have been buying fish food and feed them now and then. We just catch and release at this point, but, on average, in about an hour, we reel in about 15 fish, both perch and cats. My husband is in heaven. Shannon and Ky down the street have been raising baby ducks to set loose in the pond as well.”

Without or without dropping in a line, Siena residents can enjoy strolling around the pond, stopping for a picnic, or merely relaxing beside this lovely spot. Siena also features a community pool and playground for more outdoor enjoyment.

We have already closed on 20 new homes in this growing neighborhood with a few more pending. Siena is planned as a premier community of new homes in a convenient location just minutes from historic downtown Bryan and Texas A&M. If you’re interested in becoming part of this friendly area, talk to Stylecraft Builders. We have a variety of homestyles in sizes ranging from 1,100 to more than 2,000 square feet. Siena is a beautiful corner within the growing city of Bryan—a great place to call “home”.
