If you’re looking for a new furry friend, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to find them. The Bryan Animal Center is participating in the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative, which helps find loving homes for every animal in the shelter.
It’s summer in Bryan, Texas, and that can mean different things to different people depending on various factors like how old you are, or how you like to have fun. But one thing is pretty much universal to everyone: It’s HOT! It’s so hot that you may just be tempted to stay inside your air-conditioned house and watch Netflix everyday. But before you give in to the high temperatures, check out these fun ways to beat the heat in Bryan.
Make a Splash
The City of Bryan’s pools are a fun and affordable way to get out of the house and still keep cool in the summer. And they’re not just for kids. Take the plunge into one of the City’s four pools.
Experience Lake Life
If you enjoy the water but want more of a nature feel, look no further than Lake Bryan. The lake provides a great opportunity to swim, fish, and enjoy your aquatic toys. If you don’t want to get wet, there’s miles of hike and mountain bike trails, and then there’s the always relaxing “The Hook” restaurant, where you can finish your day with good food and drinks, good music, and the best sunsets in the Brazos Valley.
Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and be active, but again, it’s HOT! Of course, who says you have to be active outdoors. Neal Recreation Center is a great place to stay active and burn those calories. And it’s air conditioned.
The movie theater is another great place to beat the summer heat during the day. Whether you’re flying solo or with a group of friends, you’ll be able to kickback with your favorite movie snacks and keep cool. Oh, and did we mention that Bryan has an IMAX theater. Not only that, but there’s no better place to watch a movie than The Queen in Downtown Bryan for one of their Thursday or Saturday matinees.
Reading is Fun-damental
It’s never too hot to enrich your mind. Clara B. Mounce Public Library in Downtown Bryan offers a refreshingly cool atmosphere with tons of awesome books just waiting to be explored. They also offer a summer reading program for children, teens, and adults filled with cool events and cool prizes.
