Spring Break Activities in Lubbock


Spring Break… for some, that might cause unpleasant memories thinking of where we were at this time last year. We totally get that, and we feel it too. However, Spring is all about new beginnings and fresh air, and colors, and letting that West Texas wind blow through your hair 😉 Whether you’re sticking close to home as usual or looking for a few new adventures, Lubbock Moms has you covered.

See our list below for a few ideas that might brighten up your March and give you a renewed sense of togetherness (of a different sort this time!). Rediscover some old favorites or check out some really cool new features. Some require you to get out and about, and some you can stay in those jammies! 

Either way, we hope that Spring Break 2021 is an opportunity for us all to reflect on a hard year but jump forward with hope and renewed energy!

I am a born and raised Lubbockite and never thought I would still be here! But I love my job and having family close by has been amazing, especially with a child. I'm a mom to a threenager, Margaux, and wife to Justin. I currently work full time for the Texas Tech University System as the Director for the Public Art Collection and am working on my PhD in Higher Education Administration at Tech. I love seeing and embracing the growth that Lubbock has made lately in the arts scene and try to explore that as much as possible. I also love wine and good food.
