The statue and Walk of Fame is just across the street from the Buddy Holly Center. It's a small display naming local celebrities and more famous people from the area. Probably not worth a special trip unless one knows these celebrities, but easy and okay as a n add-on to seeing the Buddy Holly Center.

Two of us visited this after visiting the Buddy Holly Center next door. If you visit the BH Center you should walk across the street to see this. It was a beautiful day and a good one to get your picture taken next to the Buddy Holly Statue.

Ideally located next to the Buddy Holly centre - a tribute to all. It features stars for a large number of great musicians

Every Buddy Holly fan and West Texas music history buff should go see this. There is an unbelievable constellation of early Rock-n-Roll and Country Western stars from or connected to Lubbock.

Nice little park in a bad warehouse area of town trying to come up in the world. Lucky for us there was a Farmers Market that day and it saved the morning to a dull day in Lubbock

This area is easy to get to, and it gives a nice tribute to Buddy Holly. It is right on Crickets avenue, so it is close to the action of that area.

Located in the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, just across the street from the Buddy Holly Center, this is another must-visit for Buddy Holly and music fans.

The area where the statue is located is very nicely isolated and has a large open grass area in a rather urban setting. The bronze statue is well done and looks strikingly like Buddy during one of his performances.
