Lubbock: Home Of Buddy Holly

Lubbock is famed as the home of legendary musician Buddy Holly. To truly get a feel for the city, a visit to the Buddy Holly Center should be your first stop. There you'll find a small but complete museum full of Holly memorabilia, music, and even film. Old fans will love it, and newcomers will become fans here. Lubbock has plenty to do for outdoor enthusiasts, especially golfers who will enjoy the local courses such as Meadowbrook and Shadow Hills. The Texas South Plains is known as wine country, and a trip to tour the McPherson Cellars winery is a fascinating look into the way the local wine is made."
