5. Grab a bite at Northgate

One of the oldest aggie traditions is the Northgate District. Northgate’s roots began in the 1930s as Texas A&M University experienced continued growth, and students and faculty needed a place to eat, drink, and be merry. While in town for gameday weekend, stop by one of the famous local establishments like the Dixie Chicken, The Corner Bar and Rooftop Grill or Chimy’s to enjoy a piece of history.

6. The George Bush Presidential Library & Museum

The George Bush Presidential Library & Museum is a must-see while in College Station. Learn about the life and legacy of President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush in a both educational and entertaining format.

Located in the heart of Texas A&M University, Aggie Park is opening to the public for the first time this September 2nd with a kickoff concert featuring Robert Earl Keen ‘78. Renovated with new features such as an outdoor amphitheater, performance pavilion, and dedicated media utilities for national broadcasts, Aggie Park is set up to be the hottest spot in Aggieland on game day weekend.
