My husband and I enjoyed visiting this national park called the Texas White House. There is a jet parked on the premises which served as the Presidential plane during President Johnson's administration. You learn a lot about President Johnson's administration and his family life including information on Lady Bird Johnson. It is an interesting tour and it covers when President... More

The LBJ Ranch is worth a morning or afternoon if you're in the area. The NPS has done a wonderful job preserving the ranch. The various stops (childhood home, schoolhouse, Texas White House etc.) bring LBJ to life for those of us who were not born until after his presidency. Very well done!

What a great place to look around. The little farm at the beginning of the State Park was a nice little walk and we had an interesting talk with the staff there, the smell of the food cooking in the kitchen (no electricity) was mouthwatering. Then back in the car to LBJ's childhood home and the cemetery where he and... More

I was a child during LBJ's presidency, and he was the Vietnam President to me. I'm embarrassed by what I did not know that this great man did for the "Great Society". I stopped in Johnson City for a great film, a tour of his boyhood home, and a short walk around family property. Drove to the LBJ ranch from... More

My wife and I were out in the Hill Country and had time to visit this park. We are very glad we did. It is a beautiful location and we got a view into LBJ and what life was like at his ranch. I found it a very interesting view into the life of a president I didn't know much... More

This is well worth the time and travel. It is a unique oppportunity since most of our past and current presidents will/would not donate their homes to the National Park system. The home has been returned to it's 1960's decor and depicts the era perfectly. A walk down memory lane.

This park is small and actually consists of several city blocks. We attended the guided tour of LBJ's Boyhood Home and enjoyed walking around the property as well as going through the awesome Visitor Center. Their film is a must prior to the tour!

I was not a fan of LBJ because of Viet Nam. We are in the area getting work on our RV and had time to sightsee. We picked this and did not regret the decision. Our first part of this stop was at the visitor center. We saw a 25 minute movie about LBJ's love of the Hill Country of... More
