Now that traveling has become an option again with the COVID-19 pandemic calming down, I've been looking into some trips I can take. I’ve been searching for somewhere my friend group could to all go together because we've been talking about taking a trip for a long time now.

When it comes to my friends, everyone has vastly different schedules. We have some people that work the usual 8-5 on the weekdays, but also some that work evenings and weekends. There are even a couple of them that are still students at Texas Tech and are taking summer classes or on summer break.

Taking all of this into consideration, I needed to find an option that would accommodate a larger group of people, not break the bank and be close to Lubbock. So I hopped onto Airbnb and started searching. I eventually came across some cabin rentals at Palo Duro Canyon. That's where I found the perfect place for a trip with friends, family or even just your significant other (if you have the budget).

It’s a newly-renovated home with six bedrooms and three bathrooms that sleeps nine people. It has a hot tub, a large back patio, a game room and is right on the rim of the canyon. It’s going for $841 a night and is definitely one of the more expensive cabins in the area. However, if you're bringing the full capacity of 9 people, it's not a bad price to split.

It seems like a great option for those with a larger group to be able to have a weekend getaway that is less than two hours from Lubbock. My favorite feature are the huge windows that overlook the Palo Duro Canyon. Check it out in the gallery below.
