The weather isn’t always perfect, but when it is you’ll definitely want to get out of the house and take advantage. Who doesn’t love a warm day by the pool, at the park, or even at a picnic in your own backyard? The list of outdoor activities is endless! For something a little more exciting, there are several spots right here in Lubbock where you can get out, enjoy the weather and have the next best day of your life.

The Range

This local golf-topia has sixty tees, four washer pits, live music, and tons of outdoor games. The venue is surrounded by trees and garden lights giving it that “cozy backyard” atmosphere. If you aren’t a golfer, The Range is still a great place to spend the day. They offer a variety of beer and serve pizza from Crusty’s Wood Fired Pizza. Come by and hang out with friends, family, and kids, too!

The Garden

Nothing says "perfect day" like listening to live music and drinking a cold beer with a bit of sun on your face. The Garden is an outdoor bar and patio with a festive vibe. This venue has tasty food, a full bar (including local craft beer), happy hour specials, and movie screenings. The Garden caters to the game-lover with giant Jenga, Beer Pong, and Connect Four. They are also pet-friendly, so bring your dog (or goldfish?) to get in on the fun!

BBQ is delicious, but what about BBQ on a bistro-lit patio with a gorgeous lake view? Yes, please! E&J Smokehouse and Grill at Spirit Ranch has all of your classic BBQ delicacies, but with a setting that makes you feel like you’re in heaven. In addition to the ace food and outdoors, they also have live music concerts. You might even see a peacock or two!

Thunder Zone

Go-kart tracks never go out of style. Thunder Zone hosts two race tracks for all ages. Race go-karts with your people, have a thrill (and maybe a tan!). Come to Thunder Zone to fulfill that need for speed, and while you're there, check out their indoor attractions. We're talkin' laser tag and mini golf, with a side of game room goodness.
