College Station is America’s Top College Town
According to Livability.com, College Station is America’s top college town in 2012. What an amazing honor! Livability.com looks for the best small to mid-sized communities across the country to live as well as to visit. Their exhaustive 20 year search across the United States has wielded Top 10 lists that include Best BBQ Cities, Best Cities for Historic Preservation, Best Cities for Affordable Vacations and Best Cities for Veterans.
The low cost of living, plethura of entertainment and recreational options and family-friendly atmosphere are just some of the attributes that made College Station the top choice for Livability.com. Of course, having an educational establishment like Texas A&M doesn’t hurt either (Go, Aggies!). While the athletic program is known throughout the country, the college also provides a venue for live musical and theatrical performances for the community.
During the school year, Texas A&M students make up more than half of the entire population of College Station. Because they tend to bring more cultural diversity as well as great medical facilities and a steady influx of money into the local economy, college towns are always attractive to homeowners. College Station is no exception.
