5 Fun Ways to Beat the Summer Heat in Bryan

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 three 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 hiking and biking trails, and plenty of trees to hang your hammock and catch one of the best sunsets in the Brazos Valley.

Stay Fit

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.

Matinee Anyone?

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
