Sadly I only have one day in Lubbock
February 2, 2013 10:37PM
I am an Australian and come from Rockhampton in Queensland. On the way back from a holiday in the Caribbean later this year we have three days in Dallas. My wife plans to stay in Dallas and shop on July 11 while I fly to Lubbock for the day to pay homage to Buddy Holly. Many years ago I left a small mememto in a cornfield outside Clear Lake in Iowa and visited the Surf Ballroom to pay my respects and I feel I cannot get this close to Lubbock and not visit the museum. Folks, can you tell me does anyone run a tour which perhaps visits/ drives past his home, his school, his grave, where he played some gigs? I doubt very much I will ever get a chance like this again and I want to make the most of my day. I know from the websites about Lubbock that there is a great deal more to see and I mean no disrespect to the other attractions in your beautiful city but I have been a fan of the great man since my older brother introduced me to his music and his tragic story when a was in short pants.

Hello there from Lubbock, Texas!

At this time, there are no formal tours that will take visitors like yourself around town that trace the footsteps of the late Buddy Holly. However, we would like to offer something more personal if you are interested. If so, please contact our team at visitlubbock@gmail.com. We look forward to speaking with you.

I really enjoyed my trip to Lubbock recently. I wasn’t sure what there was to do in Lubbock so I checked out this awesome site and lubbockintheloop.com. We checked out two wineries that were really great. Wine tastings and food were a perfect combination and made for a fun afternoon. Thank you for all the information!

A week in Lubbock.
August 8, 2011 7:47PM
My wife and I spent the week of Aug. 8th with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson. Monday we drove in from Maud,TX. I like the hills and canyons, cotton fields and the views into tomorrow. Our East Texas view is to the next trees. Tuesday, we went to the Ranch Heritage Museum. What a place to spend half a day. We then went to an antique mall in an old bowling alley. Wednesday, we went to the Silent Wings Museum. Those soldiers and airmen were a tough bunch in WWII. We met our son-in-law at the courthouse for the Noon Music. While the music wasn’t my cup of tea, I enjoyed sitting in the shade, eating a sandwich and watching the singers hone their skills. After the music it was off to the Omni Theater for the tornado movie. Thursday, We went to the American Wind Power Center. I have always enjoyed windmills. Another place to spend half a day. We then went to another antique mall west of town. Friday, drove back home. This wasn’t our first trip, it was just the longest.
Previous trips we went to the Buddy Holly Museum and Texas Tech Museum. Three things stand out about Lubbock, 1st, everyone we encountered was nice as could be. 2nd,it is a very clean town for its size and 3rd it’s very easy to navigate the streets.
Looking forward to our next visit.

April Visit to Family
May 5, 2011 10:18AM
We live in Arizona. We traveled to Lubbock in April to viist family. We enjoyed the time spent there. The City is very well laid out. It appears to have lots of growth, with all the new home developments. The only complaint we have is that on the city’s main streets, the lane markings and turn arrows were so faded that it was hard to see them, especially at night.

What are the Taxis like in Lubbock?
April 4, 2010 9:04AM
I arrive thursday 29th April from London. I have searched the web diligently but can find no mention of Taxis except a phone number. Can anyone tell me if it will be easy to find a taxi when I arrive about 8pm to take me to my hotel on Avenue Q? also roughly what price would I expect to pay? I don’t want to hire a car as I am unfamiliar with driving in the States. Will watch out for helpful replies

My wife and I grew up in Lubbock; but, have been living in another Texas city since 1972. Lubbock remains very special to us. We look forward to each and every visit. Lubbock is an All American City. The people are genuine, warm and sincere. The City has grown and prospered over the years. It has everything to offer. My wife and I have talked seriously about returning to spend the balance of our years there. Why not, it is everything you would want as a place to live! Long Live Lubbock and it’s wonderful people!!

Hey!

My name is Adam Barnard from London, UK and I came to Lubbock for the 2nd time last February for the 5oth anniversary of Buddy’s death. I would like to thank Jordan Mcewan for making it possible for me to perform at the Blue Light in Buddy Holly Avenue on 3rd Feb 2009. I met Jordan by chance last year in April at the Blue Light. He became my best friend for the next 5 days and showed me around places and met some wonderful people in the process. When I told Jordan I was returning in Feb 09 for the anniversary he was happy to hear that. He picked me up from the Lubbock Airport and dropped me off at my motel Rodeway Inn on Q.

I would also like to give a big mention to everyone at the Lubbock Visitors Center for taking care of me and giving me goodies to take back to the UK. Thank you to: Leslie Matthews and PJ for running me around in their cars and showing me sights etc... The Pancake House is AWESOME!

I hope to be returning to Lubbock in the summer of 2010.

Ps. Thank you to the Buddy Holly center for being so helpful especially David Seitz.

Kind regards
Adam Barnard

I loved Lubbock, TX! I especially liked how the area around Texas Tech is being remodeled to look nicer and to fit more of the college student’s needs. I do wish that there were more shopping centers and at least one more mall. The South Plains Mall did not look very good from the outside. Although once we got inside it was very nice and had a wide variety of stores. It also looked rather new inside which is also a plus for Lubbock. It seems like Lubbock is quickly growing which is a great thing for new college students. I can’t wait to actually live there and learn more about the city!

Great weekend vacation.
July 7, 2009 8:27AM
When my husband and I go on vacation, I usually plan for weeks...buying books, researching online, etc. so when we decided to go to Lubbock with only 10 days notice, I was a little worried. I ordered and received information within a couple of days (THANKS!!!) from the Chamber and found this website invaluable for planning my trip. Our vacation couldn’t have been better. Our whole weekend...from tourist sites, entertainment, restaurants and motel was found in the Lubbock guides and everything was great. Would love to visit Lubbock again...we really enjoyed our weekend.

Lubbock Days
February 2, 2009 12:25AM
Lubbock has a special place in my heart. I went to school there for 17 years, but have been gone for 39 years. Oops! I just gave away my age. I visit often because I have family there. I am so amazed of how much this city has changed not to mention grown so much. When I lived there the loop was consider out of town. You have a beautiful clean city and I always remember my high school days there. I never leave there without going by my beautiful Lubbock High School. I have many good memories there. I live in Albuquerque, NM now, but I will never get rid of my childhood property there because having it feels like I still have a little root still planted there.

Hi! I am originally from Lubbock and I moved to Arizona a little over 2 years ago. Everyone in Lubbock is so friendly and has that Texas charm. I love that place, and in the last 2 years it has grown so much! It has that small town feeling with all the resources of a large city! Lubbock Rocks!

I’m a dork. I love Lubbock. I moved there to go to school and met my husband there. I just have VERY fond memories of that place. I don’t know what it is about it but every I know feels the same. There’s magic in Lubbock and you have to know where to go to find it, and you have to know where to find the people. It’s not that hard because they’re everywhere!!! I live in Japan right now, but GOD nothing compares to Lubbock. I get to visit in 27 days. X)

Coming back to Lubbock always reminds me of how life OUGHT to be. I’m so thankful for my West Texas roots. Now a native Houstonian it’s the annual trip to Lubbock that I look forward to the most. I left Lubbock 24 years ago and it’s Lubbock that I long for every Summer. About 7 years ago my wife was giving me a hard time about Lubbock. "Lubbock this, Lubbock that, what possibly could be the big deal about Lubbock?" So later that week I announced to my family that part of this years family vacation would be spent in Lubbock. Lets just say it didn’t go over so well, but I stuck to my guns. Our first trip to Lubbock was July 4th, 2001. 4th On Broadway... I mean come on, does it get any better than that?! This event defines Lubbock in my opinion. The entire community is involved, friends, laughter, excitement, down home feeling, everyone knows someone. It’s the best free street party I’ve ever been to. Picnic at McKenzie Park is priceless. We get to the Park about 4 P.M. every year, throw out our blankets close to the water. Football, Frisbee, Family & Friends make for a rememberable afternoon every time. This year I ran into two childhood friends that I haven’t seen or heard from since I left Lubbock. One lives in L.A. and one in Houston, they to come home for the 4th as well. We all three talked about the great things we learned about life being raised in Lubbock. We talked about Reverence for God. It seems that Lubbock has never swayed from it’s reverence (move away from Lubbock & you’ll see what I’m talking about). We talked about Respect & Responsibility for authority and others. We just got home last night from our 5 days in Lubbock & already my kids and wife are talking about next year. I love it! Oh, BTW my wife fell in love with Lubbock 7 years ago, some of you probably already figured that out. Thank God for my Lubbock Roots!
