May is the classic start of summer for the Bryan-College Station area. Average temperatures range between the mid-70s and 80s, making for a perfect time to be outdoors. So go ahead and enjoy some time away from your studies.
This month, grab your closest pals and check out these fun (and unique) things to do in College Station:
4 Fun & Unique Things to Do in College Station
- Rock out at Lakeside Icehouse and Lake Bryan. The Lakeside Icehouse at Lake Bryan is one of those rare local gems that are only possible due to the right mix of location, people, and activities. Here, you can rent a campsite and wake up to the sunrise on Lake Bryan. Or spend the warm summer afternoons swimming, fishing, and boating. If you love live music and delicious southern fare, then head down to the Lakeside Icehouse. This lively location is known for featuring hot and upcoming music talents. One exciting event coming up is the two-day Rock Away Cystic Fibrosis Music Festival taking place May 12 and 13.
- Feel the wind in your hair at Lone Star Trapeze Academy. Enjoy a first-hand look at circus living and fly through the sky at this one-of-a-kind academy. Here, a highly experienced team of acrobats are eager and ready to teach the art of trapeze. Enjoy personalized lessons or book a group for an exciting day event. Just make sure everyone is ready to get loose and feel the air whoosh beneath their feet.
- Throw frisbees and watch the pups play at Research Park. Situated on the edge of the Texas A&M campus, Research Park has something for just about everyone. But our two favorites is the impressive 18-hole disc golf course and the off-leash area alive with hilarious puppy antics. This latter dog area is beloved by both owners and wish-they-were-owners thanks to an overlooking grassy knoll ideal for a blanket, book, and early summer picnic. But for those disc golfers among you, there really is no better place in the city. Research Park boasts the city’s only 18-hole course. Plus, some water hazards that make for more exciting and challenging play.
- Or stay in the shade and problem solve at Escape Room. Escape Room BCS just opened its doors last year and already it’s become a massive hit among students and older game aficionados. This unique business locks participants in a room with a group of people (you can play with strangers or your friends). Everyone then must work together to find clues and solve a series of puzzles that will allow them to escape. It’s an immersive experience and ideal for those who love haunted houses, board games, or simply solving mysteries.
