When you think of College Station’s busiest times, the fall semester with Texas A&M football and a campus full of students instantly come to mind. But the summer months attract thousands of visitors to our community, too.

Our summers are packed with conventions, meetings, and youth and adult sports tournaments that help our stores, hotels, and restaurants continue to prosper. Through August, Visit and Compete College Station hosts an impressive 21 events that will attract nearly 50,000 visitors to town. Most of these guests plan to stay multiple days, making a powerful impact on our local economy.

College Station offers an unique discount program -- the Heart of Aggieland Visitor’s Pass – that encourages visitors to explore and enjoy College Station’s many fine restaurants, entertainment venues, and retail establishments by offering enticing specials and discounts.
