Things to Do in Lubbock

After a restful night at Woodrow House Bed & Breakfast, guests will find an exciting, vibrant region of Texas awaits discovery.

Lubbock boasts excellent local restaurants, where visitors can enjoy a break from chains serving cookie-cutter cuisine. The South Plains also is known for its excellent array of wineries, and more than 80% of all grapes grown for Texas wineries are cultivated in our beautiful region of the state.

Fans of local music will love the Buddy Holly Museum and the West Texas Walk of Fame, while agriculture buffs will enjoy the National Ranching Heritage Center and the Bayer Museum of Agriculture – and these are just a few on Lubbock’s extensive museum list.

Texas Tech University enjoys a nationally recognized sports program, and the city frequently hosts noted cultural events and attracts international performance artists. There’s a lot to do – get an early start and then come back to Woodrow House and enjoy a glass of wine with Dawn & David!
