Last weekend we drove roughly two hours to the small town of Bryan, Texas.
Friends of ours were performing at the Grand Stafford Theater and we thought it would be fun to see them in a smaller venue.
I had no idea how adorable Main Street would be and that Bryan actually uses its downtown area, unlike many small Texas towns.
After the show Saturday night we walked a block over to the wine bar and purchased a nice Priorat. Everything we needed was within walking distance.
Our plans were very last minute and I literally spent minutes booking a hotel. I pulled a rare move and booked it through Priceline at 5pm the day of arrival. We stayed at a Sheraton property and our room was basic, but comfortable.
I wish I’d made time for hotel research during the harried packing moments, trying to leave before sunset, but I didn’t. If so I would have found La Salle Hotel, which was a couple of doors down from Grand Stafford Theater. I would’ve rather stayed in a historic Texas Landmark!
Let my adventure save you from ever having to drive into student territory and stay across the street from Texas A&M University! Downtown Bryan is a world away and the architecture is beautiful.
In the morning, we came back to Main Street for brunch at The Village. After a bite to eat, while taking photos of Main Street, we stumbled into Harvest Coffee Bar. I had one of the best almond milk cappuccinos of my life there!
May your journey be your muse,
