Often downplayed by people downstate and misjudged by many of people who only have heard something in passing and think it is truth. Those people likely have never been to Lubbock. Lubbock is a oasis in the vast frontier of Northwestern Texas. Great restaurants, Texas Tech events, name concerts, outstanding live music, and surprisingly excellent shopping. Snow skiing is just a couple of hours away in New Mexico, and in the summer one of the best fishing lakes in Texas is only 45 miles Southeast of Lubbock, Lake Allen Henry. Rapidly growing with new and exciting places to eat and be entertained as Lubbock was the first true live music capital of Texas. There is a vibrant arts culture here and a new state of the art performance center is going to built downtown. A 15,500 seat arena which hosted many great concerts like Paul McCartney, Cher, Trans Siberian Orchestra, Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, plus others. Yup, Outstanding schools, a Tier 1 World Class University, outstanding seasonal weather, and very low cost of living.... make Lubbock one of the best places to live in Texas.
