We Are Sorry Lubbock, But You Are Lame

According to real estate website Movoto, four spots in the Lone Star State are among the country’s 10 most boring cities. We are sorry, Texas.

Movoto ranked the cities based on nightlife, live music spots, active life options, arts and entertainment, restaurants, the percentage of young residents, and population density.

The number one city even sounds like the place is lounging around doing nothing. This city had very low population density, and a slightly older population, never mind the fact that it’s home to Texas Tech University.

Lubbock isn’t exactly full of culture either, as the arts per capita ranked 73rd and the music venues per capita ranked 83rd. Where Lubbock really took a nosedive was in the dining department, so much that it ranked dead last in the non-fast food restaurant category.

The one thing this city didn’t totally fail at was nightlife, where it ranked a pretty middle-of-the-pack 58th. However, if you are an older college student who isn’t into art, and who’s living on fast food and cheap drinks, Lubbock might be for you.
