At Home in BCS is a collaborative effort between Experience Bryan College Station, Downtown Bryan Association, B/CS Chamber of Commerce, Brazos Valley Economic Development Corporation, and both cities of Bryan and College Station. This initiative started in March of 2020 as COVID-19 first impacted the Brazos Valley and continues to work together to maintain a sense of community during these unique times. At Home in BCS Week kicks off the BCS Staycation campaign from Experience Bryan College Station. The BCS Staycation campaign promotes locals to enjoy their community while providing a boost to the local economy and helping to save jobs in the local hospitality industry. Find hotel rates starting at $55/night at www.experiencebcs.com/staycation2020.
