Very nice tribute to Buddy and his music. Clean area - not sure about the area after dark. We had dinner at Triple J - the only reason we were in the area.

This is located right across the street from the Buddy Holly Center but is unrelated to the museum. It's is interesting to see while you are nearby to visit the museum. It is not a destination of its own merit.

This statue of Buddy Holly was moved from its original location so if you are using GPS to find it you will be sent to new housing. However, very nice layout and the Walk of Fame interesting.
