I like Lubbock in general growing up thirty minutes away. I live here now and it is a lot better and building alot of businesses and housing. The crime is getting really scary and bad here.

Their is a lot of places to eat out at. A lot of people are also moving here at a fast rate and so much construction as well.

Lubbock Texas is a small West Texas city that is flat and dusty. The university Texas Tech is there along with a large medical center. There is the depot district in downtown Lubbock that hosts many bars and places to eat. Lubbock is a large cotton growing region.

The good about Lubbock is it is one of the most friendly places is America. Everybody loves to talk and wave on a lonesome road. The bad is there is a very limited amount of activities and fun things to do in this city.

There is nothing to do in Lubbock except get drunk. College students turn into actual alcoholics because there is no remotely fun activities.

You have to stay indoors when there is a dust storm. I was once caught outside in a dust storm, and I literally couldn't see one foot ahead of me. I had dust in my hair for days. I wanted to die.
