Lubbock Travel Guide: 64 reviews and 100 photos

I lived in Lubbock a couple times while on undergraduate internships. It was my first time living out of New York State, and so it was cool to be in new place. Lubbock was actually an okay place to live. It's a small town so no traffic, though with a population of about 200,000 it has all the main amenities of any city whether it be good restaurants or golf courses.

Buddy Holly is one of Lubbock's famous sons. He and his band made some great tunes. It's too bad that he died so young in the plane crash.


Don't get too close! This was taken out at Buffalo Springs lake during the Balloon Fest.
