College Station is a city located in Brazos County, Texas, in the heart of the Brazos Valley. The city itself is currently home to over 100,000 residents, at least according to the most recent U.S. Census estimate. The university is the city’s claim to fame; as a land, sea and space grant institution, it is considered one of the finest and largest research institutions in the state of Texas. College Station is located near three of the top ten largest cities not just in Texas, but in the entire U.S.: College Station sits near Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.
The city was founded in 1860 by the Houston and Texas Central Railway, which wanted to build a railroad through the area. Initial growth of College Station was relatively slow, compared to other cities that were founded along a rail line; after a decade, though, College Station was chosen as the site of the new Agricultural and Manufacturing College, Texas A&M University, a land-grant college and the first public school of higher education in the state of Texas. Today, Texas A&M has a profound influence on the continued economic stability of College Station, and was instrumental in the rise and growth of the city.
During the summer months, average highs tend to reach into the low-to-mid 90’s during the day, dropping down into the mid-to-upper 70’s overnight. During the winter months, though, average highs usually only reach into the low-to-mid 60’s during the day, with overnight lows dropping down into the low-to-mid 40’s. College Station is decidedly cooler than other Texas cities, but it still does not see the extreme weather such as snow and ice that more northern cities and states are prone to during the winter. This tends to help keep auto transport prices to and from College Station lower during the slower shipping season, and this also helps to keep prices to or from the area a bit lower as well.
