Just in case you’ve been up to your eyeballs in work lately, Spring Break is upon us. Haven’t made have any travel plans? Don’t panic. You don’t have to travel all the way to Cancun to have a good time. There are several things you can do right here in Lubbock to keep you occupied over the break. So kick back, relax and check out our list of the Top 5 Things to do in Lubbock for Spring Break 2012.


Red Raider Baseball



Nothing says spring quite like baseball. This year, drive down to the newly renovated Dan Law Field and catch a couple of Texas Tech Baseball games. Not only is it a great spring tradition, the field and Rip Griffin Park have gotten a makeover since last season, which gives you yet another reason to get out and enjoy the spring weather. The Red Raiders will be playing against Alabama A&M on the 13th and 14th. Catch game 1 if you’re in the mood for an evening game; it starts at 6:00p. If you want to work on that tan, catch game 2 at 1:00p Wednesday.

Lubbock Area Lakes



If you’ve got a little larger chunk of time to spend, take a day trip to one of the nearby lakes. Buffalo Lake and Lake Alan Henry both have a myriad of things to do, and they don’t all have to be water related. Grill, fish, and if you don’t mind some chilly water, take a dip. Each lake sells season passes, as well as boat passes, so you can keep going back even after the break is up.

Ok, so your idea of taking it easy may not be working out, but let’s be honest, our middles haven’t gotten any smaller since Christmas. Why not use your extra time to get into the swing of a new workout regimen? Many of the gyms in Lubbock are offering spring sign-up deals, and several places offer memberships for less than twenty bucks a month. You could get all that soreness out of the way now, and by the time the break is over you could be used to getting to the gym on a regular basis.

Sign the Kids Up



The phrase “Spring Break” can carry a certain stigma when shrieked towards parents. Don’t worry, if you’ve got work and you’re running out of ways to keep the kids busy, the City of Lubbock has your back. There are tons of things to keep your kids busy during the break. The Parks and Recreation department has countless weekly programs that are either cheap or free, and are geared towards children of all ages. You can sign the munchkins up for anything from athletic programs to arts and crafts, which will keep them busy for several hours a day.

Stay in and Cookout



Maybe the past few months have been all go, and you’d like a little more stay. That’s why our last, and personal favorite, is right in your own back yard. Get the kids, your neighbors, some good friends and plenty of food and kick back on your own turf for a while. Grill up some burgers using your own favorite secret recipe and just relax. It’s cheap, easy, and it can be done on your own schedule.
