Lubbock is located on the High Plains of West Texas. It is home to approximately 300,000 residents and to more than 36,000 Texas Tech students. Although it still maintains an atmosphere of small-town hospitality and West Texas charm, it also offers big-city delights, from award-winning wineries to its rich musical heritage (Buddy Holly is the city’s most famous native son).
