Great venue. Loved the gallery as well. We were able to see the whole gallery in about an hour. They told us they were expanding into the rest of the building shortly.

Ok I like Buddy and it was worth the stop for us. Plenty of parking at the Buddy Holly Center across the street which we did not visit.

This is directly across the street from the Buddy Holly Center. The statue of Buddy Holly is awesome and who wouldn't want a photo of you next to him?

This park is a nice tribute to Buddy Holly and those that knew him. We enjoyed it. It is across the street from Buddy Holly Center and you can walk to this park from there.

A simple monument to one of our outstanding entertainers cut short in the prime of his life. The plaques around the wall behind the statue are of extreme interest as well. Only takes a few minutes to visit and is just across the street from the Buddy Holly Center.

TXBohemian visited late on a frozen Lubbock night to pay tribute to a true pioneer of rock and roll. Stop by, and remember an innovator that died too young, but left a lasting mark on Rock and Roll.

The best part was the big "chalk board" entitled "Before I die..." it was covered with hopes and dreams of visitors to the Walk of Fame...not a single piece of unpleasant graffiti.

The Buddy Holly statue was worth the stop !! The area is well kept, there is plenty of parking and great photo op's. A chalk board area allowed visitors to make comments about, "what I want to do before I die". Surprisingly there were no vulgar comments. I was impressed Lubbock !!

Another "must see" if you visit Lubbock. Many people in that hall of fame, and the picture with Buddy Holly is a must!

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.
