Brazos Valley (/ˈbræzəs/ (listen) BRAZ-əs) is a region of the U.S. state of Texas comprising the following 7 counties in Central Texas: Brazos, Burleson, and Robertson (which collectively comprise the Bryan–College Station metropolitan area), and the neighboring counties of Grimes, Leon, Madison, and Washington.[1]

The area is centered on Brazos County, the cities of College Station and Bryan, and Texas A&M University. The Brazos River lies at the center of the region; however, not all areas of the region are a part of the Brazos drainage basin.

The Brazos Valley Council of Governments represents the collective interests of the local governments in the region.[2]

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History maintains collections in the fields of archaeology, botany, conchology, cultural history, geology, mammalogy, ornithology, and paleontology in the region.
