It has been said that the land around Lubbock is “a treeless, desolate waste of uninhabited solitude, which has always been and must continue, uninhabited forever”.* Tell that to the more than 275 thousand people who call Lubbock home today.
The Lubbock of the 21st century is home to universities, colleges, and both cultural and historical museums. It has a thriving nightlife, a busy music scene, and good restaurants. If you find yourself happily nestled in a Lubbock Bed and Breakfast, consider yourself lucky.
