Today and in large part because of the region’s urbanization and internationalization, the Brazos Valley boasts an affordable quality of life that celebrates the arts and culture, education, commerce, and the outdoors.

We are home to two of the best public school districts in the State of Texas, places of worship, world-class restaurants and commercial districts, excellent medical facilities, beautiful neighborhoods and a wonderful parks system.
