Old School RomanceIf you can get in the Aggie spirit—and paint the town maroon—you’ll enjoy a getaway for two in College Station. Check in to the chic La Salle Hotel a classic limestone building with 55 rooms that were recently refurbished to include leather furnishings, black-and-white tiled floors, and local artwork. Taste test vinos at the Messina Hof Winery which has a handsome wine room and on-site restaurant. You might discover the town’s next music legend (A&M alums include Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen) at First Fridays where visitors can enjoy art exhibits, horse-drawn carriage rides, and live jazz and bluegrass.
