Good likeness of Buddy Holley. Good for a photo shot. Also, see the wall of fame and the Buddy Holley museum across the street.

Cool statue of Buddy Holly with walls of plaques for other famous Texas-born musicians. Good photo op to show your family & friends later. Right across the street from the Buddy Holly Center. A must if you are a dedicated Buddy Holly fan.

There isn't much to do at this spot but it's right across the street from the Buddy Holly center. You can walk there and get a few photos before heading out.

This memorial stands on a corner in downtown Lubbock and it's a great photo spot. Lots of old buildings nearby like the depot. Worth the time to check it out.

You can enjoy this small attraction in about 15 minutes. Really nice statue of Buddy Holly in front of a wall of plaques. Don't forget the tree dedicated to Sir Paul McCartney at the entrance. Located across Crickets Sreet from the museum.

Located just across the street from the Buddy Holly Center the statue is an iconof Lubbock, where Holly grew up and began his brief career. I was surprised at all the names on the wall of famous folk from West Texas! Also, didnt know Mac Davis was from Lubbock...he's on the wall too!

The wall is very nicely done and eye-opening for anyone not from the panhandle or familiar with Texas music. Definitely worth the time to stop by and visit.
