My wife and I decided to drive the 75 miles from where we are staying, so that we could explore the "Texas White House". This is really 2 parks in one. When you first pull in you are in a Texas State Park. This is where you will find the Visitors Center and get your pass to enter the National... More

We visited the LBJ state park and historic site and found it to be very interesting. Our guide told us LBJ spent 25 percent of his presidential years at this ranch. Since he was a great communicator, there are telephones within reach everywhere, even at the dining room table. He loved watching news, so wherever you would have a tv...he... More

Lyndon B. Johnson left the presidency as one of the most unpopular politicians in modern history. Despite this, during the five years he held the office Johnson signed into law some of the most significant legislation ever passed in civil rights and legislation. He seemed obsessed with work. This becomes clear at the "Texas White House" with his three televisions... More

When you go the LBJ Ranch, not only do you get to see the gorgeous rolling hill country of Texas, but you also get to submerse yourself inside the goings-on of one of America's most interesting and most important presidents. Much of Lyndon B. Johnson's presidential business took place at this site, a testament to his famous ability to get... More

A very worthwhile experience. Take time to see the 1966 video at the entrance visitor center and read some of the letters sent to LBJ from local folks. Then drive your car through the 600 acre national park given by the Johnson family. You can stop and take a leisurely stroll at many pullovers. You will be driving through active... More

We went thinking we'd spend an hour or so and ended up staying over 4 hours. The ranch is just gorgeous and the movies they show in different places are a great step back in time. The old buildings are fascinating and you can't beat the house and the hanger for a step back into the 60s. The cows look... More

Gorgeous hill country ranch, vast and open, dotted with Hereford cows, sheep and deer. Drove the tour road which was scenic and well-marked. Spots if interest including a replica of LBJ place of birth, family cemetery and many operational working ranch buildings and homes along the way but not obtrusive in any manner. Informative signage details spots of interest along... More

We were taking here by friends. What a place. Anyone who was around when he was in office, should take this tour. So much history inside the home. Guides were very well informed all EVERYTHING inside the home. Not for small children.

The visitor centre has a lot of information and films which we did not have time to see. His childhood home was illuminating. Not all US presidents come from backgrounds of wealth and privilege. Along with the ranch in Stonewall a good day out from Austin. Coming from the UK we knew little about LBJ so feel now a lot... More

Well worth the time and effort to stop in and see this place.I went to both parks in the area maybe 10-15 miles apart but you should visit both if possible.
