One thing that I constantly heard many years ago when I started telling everyone that I would be attending Texas Tech was, “Oh… you know there’s nothing to do in Lubbock right?”
Wrong. While Lubbock does have all of the options that a bigger city such as Dallas has, Lubbock still has a lot to offer. There are plenty of unique and fun places to visit around town. Texas Tech even has some great options in terms of entertainment as well. I will admit, that my freshman year I did not do anything to exciting here in Lubbock. The reason for this was mainly that I just didn’t know everything that Lubbock had to offer. So as a graduating senior, I’m letting you know a few things you should definitely check off your list of “Things to do in Lubbock,” or maybe even you should add a few of these too it.
