This past May we spent a lovely day at the LBJ State Park with our granddaughter. Admittance was free. The park is so clean and well maintained. It's impressive! We took her to the Sauer-Beckmann Farm...a full working farm from long ago with no running water or electricity. Our little one had a wonderful time there; she was fascinated.The folks who work the farm dress in period clothes, and have answers for all your questions. One of the farmers let our tot go in the hen house, get an egg, then take it to the gals in the kitchen(who had their wood burning stove in full operation). The animals and gardens excited her. We then took her and our little dog on the walking trails, and we all had a blast. We wandered on to some Longhorns, and some Bison. This thrilled not only the grandchild, but really perked up our pup as well. Then we went to the one room school house, and found it so interesting...learning a lot about LBJ's keen interest in education. There was a tour of the ranch (for a fee), but we went to the playgrounds instead. We loved the gift shop. Where there was typical gift shop things in there, they had a very extensive inventory of non typical gift shop things that you will not find in most places. I could not resist doing some Christmas shopping there (and a little shopping for myself and my granddaughter of course). All in all we had a fantastic day!

Visited early on 4th of July and expected larger crowds. There was not much of one at all. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Visited the location at the ranch and his childhood home. Teenagers with us learned a lot of interesting history.

Best time would have been the spring when the wildflowers were really blooming. still saw a few but most were gone. film at visitors center was interesting and informative. tv show interviewing then Pres Johnson. showing off the area. would have been better if we had more time because we missed touring the Tx white house. Enjoyed driving around the ranch and seeing the other sites there.

Got here early so decided to watch the 29 minute video at the visitors center even though we were on a tight schedule. So glad we did! The video was actually a film by LBJ himself narrating the film and giving a tour of the ranch. Well worth the $3 fee for the guided tour of the house which also included the historic car area as well as looking at the mini Air Force 1 plane. The ranch was such a serene place to visit and highlighted the beauty of the Texas Hill Country. It is easy to see why LBJ loved this Texas White House.

Get here early for the tour...we arrived at 10 am just ahead of two tour busses. The pass to drive the ranch is at the visitor center out here NOT at the center in Johnson City by LBJ's boyhood home. Tour guide was local and so knowledgeable...personal stories about the family were lovely. Like stepping back into the 60s and 70s.
