A just opened hybrid restaurant in downtown Johnson City, TX. Part outdoor and part indoor with food truck and live music. So adorbs- it primes you up for the TX Hill Country experience! Go for the fried green tomatoes. I gave it a 4 rating because I wanted a cold beer and they don't sell it. Hopefully soon...

When Lyndon Johnson was a boy homes were small and this home is worth a visit if you are also going to see the Johnson ranch. We were the only people here so we got a private tour and the guide was excellent; he really knew his LBJ history. We had just come from the ranch so it was interesting... More

This state park has much more to visit than just Johnson's boyhood home, although that was very interesting. At the visitors' center, there are two excellent videos, one on Ladybird and one on LBJ. Take the time to watch them. There is also a museum about LBJ, his life, his accomplishments. A short walk took us to the boyhood home,... More

We had a great "private" morning tour since we were the only people there. The tour guide gave us an insightful look at LBJ's life as a child and young man. We started here and then continued on to the LBJ ranch. Be sure to walk the settlement trail to see the old homestead and farm.

If you are making your way out to the ranch, go ahead and take an hour and stop at the boyhood home. They do tours on the half hour and there is a small museum that you can go through while you wait. The home is original and there are many of the original furnishings, but some have been lost... More

Interior furnishings not the family's but of the period. Good info on Johnson in museum. Not a destination but definitely a place to stop.

Friendly volunteers and rangers. Took the tour of his boyhood home. Very interesting. His homestead took up an entire block.

Start your LBJ visit here and see the museum and two films and boyhood home before going to the ranch. It provides an excellent history of the man who became the 36th president. Free tours of boyhood home, nice walk around the ancentors' ranch cabin.

I enjoyed seeing this and sitting on the swing on the porch after the tour. It was nice seeing the area of things that LBJ once partook in. It was worth stopping for me.

Very interesting short guided tour led by a park ranger. The house is right across the street from the visitor center. Watch the movies and see the exibit then head to the boyhood house.
