Growing West Texas’ Future

The Hub City is the ideal place to call home for families. With plenty of attractions and local museums, kids of all ages find something to explore in Lubbock. 

For the younger ages, Lubbock offers plenty of indoor space to play at Milestones Park, Mom Lounge and Playstreet Museum. When it comes to educational experiences, families make their way to the Science Spectrum, National Ranching Heritage Center, American Windmill Museum and the FiberMax Center for Discovery. 

Parks & Outdoors

With an average of 265 days of sunshine a year, there’s no reason to stay inside during your visit to Lubbock. Check out these outdoor areas – perfect for recreational activities.

Explore beyond the city

Outdoor enthusiasts get their adrenaline rush riding go-karts at Adventure Park or stand-up paddle boarding at SUPLBK. For those that enjoy golfing, Lubbock offers 4ORE! Golf, which is similar to TopGolf, as well as The Range to perfect their swing. Get outdoors and hike in the second largest canyon in the U.S. at Palo Duro Canyon just an hour and a half drive north, or see firsthand remnants of Charles Goodnights’ bison herd to the northwest at Caprock Canyon.
