Living in Lubbock

Located in Texas, Lubbock is the 11th largest city in the state by population, and is nicknamed ‘The Hub’ because of its position as the economic and educational center of the South Planes. The area is also one of the largest growers of cotton in the world. Expats living in Lubbock will find that the city has a number of great attractions and sights as well as a diverse culture which includes music, arts and sport. Lubbock is the birthplace of the famous musician Buddy Holly and as a result, there are many places named after him as well as events to celebrate his life and work. The Depot District is a popular area for live music and a thriving nightlife. Other popular attractions include the National Ranching Heritage Center and the Silent Wings Museum. The city also has a number of sports teams for expats living in Lubbock to cheer on, with the most popular sports being American football, basketball and baseball.
