Lubbock, Texas, is a very family-oriented city with cultural attractions, historical places of interest and excellent schools. Lubbock is home to Lubbock Christian University and Texas Tech University, and most people here are well educated. Certain areas are filled with students and a college lifestyle, including inexpensive restaurants, late-night bars and sporting events. In other schooling news, Newsweek magazine named Lubbock High School one of the best schools in America three years in a row. Lubbock is also the birthplace of many musicians, especially those pursuing rock 'n roll or country careers. This includes Buddy Holly, Lubbock's most famous son. Despite all these fantastic amenities, housing prices are still well below the national average, but they wont stay there long. The low cost of living and the beautiful landscape attract more people every year.

Housing Statistics

With over 236,065 people living in Lubbock, it seems that it could get crowded. Instead, Lubbock enjoys a pretty cushy vacancy rate, allowing individuals plenty of selection when choosing a new home. Owners make up 44 percent and renters 45 percent, leaving an 11-percent vacancy rate. The median house value in 2011 was $113,500 while the median list price in the beginning of 2013 was $149,900; the median sale price was slightly lower, at $119,202, for the same time period. This means buyers should negotiate with sellers before accepting, as there may be some sale-price wiggle room. If buying a home is still out of reach, some people may consider rent to own homes. It allows many people the chance to take calculated steps towards owning in the future.

Outdoors Activities

Lubbock enjoys an astounding variety of diversions for active individuals who like to get outside and play. Mackenzie Park is the most popular place to take kids of all ages. Its home to the Joyland Amusement Park and is next door to the American Wind Powers Center, which houses over 100 historic windmills. Theres also the Brazos River and several lakes, including Lake Alan Henry and Buffalo Springs Lake, where water sports and swimming are popular in the summer. Finally, the Buddy Holly Recreation Center has a walking trail, fishing spots, and picnic tables.

Local Events and Festivals

Strong community ties are a hallmark of Lubbock, and thats easily seen in all the events it hosts annually. The Lubbock Music Festival is one of the most famous local festivals. Originally intended to honor Buddy Holly, the festival is all about music, food and goodies for the residents as well as visitors from all over the state. The Memorial Civic Center hosts dozens of events throughout the year. Finally, the National Cowboy Symposium & Celebration celebrates all things country, western and cowboy.

Neighborhoods

There are 45 total neighborhoods in Lubbock, Texas, and each one offers something unique. Though some areas are geared more towards student life, others are predominantly family friendly. Here are a few of the most popular communities:

South Lubbock: South Lubbock includes neighborhoods like Kings Park, Lakeridge, Ballenger and Dunbar. Its a fairly walkable area, depending on the specific subdivision, and there are many well-educated people here with higher incomes than the Lubbock average.

North Lubbock: The north has neighborhoods like Guadalupe, Jackson, Clayton Carter and Skywell. Its the closest area to the Lubbock International Airport, making it ideal for folks who travel often for business or personal affairs.
