  • You can see bisons 1 hour from Austin. Nice car trip, educational program for kids to earn a badge of junior ranger 
  • I can see why LBJ and Lady Bird loved the ranch so much. I would too if I lived there! As for the tour: stop by the park office at the entrance (which is a state park) and pick up the free pass. It's ...  more »
  • The loop around the airstrip is counterclockwise and the old "bridge" across the dam is closed even though it is all on the map. Apparently, you're supposed to go to the Visitor's Center first and buy...  more »

  • I didn't visit the house, only the ranch and it was very interesting to me to discover how L.B. Johnson, used to live. Not because it's a President, but because I didn't know anything about ranches and life in Texas in the early 20th. To visit the ranch, you just drive though it on a well signed path. You see the old school, the grand-parents house, ,etc...Even the cows ! It's really nice and peaceful. Then I went to the old maid farm next to the ranch. It stayed like it was and is still in fantastic shape. There we saw a herd of does and that was perfect to conclude the day !
  • The LBJ Ranch tour is really educational and the park rangers did a great job at telling the history of the "Texas White House". The park is really well maintained even for a region going through a major drought. The whole experience is really laid back and I enjoyed my time there. I would recommend to my friends and family.
  • The state park and historic site has a visitor's center with a brief video about his life which is in the same building as an interesting gift shop. Then you can tour an interesting living-history farm where staff members dressed in period clothes explain how folks survived in this region one hundred years ago and beyond. This has nothing to do with LBJ, but is extremely engaging (and picturesque!).
  • Visiting LBJ Ranch was educational, but also a pleasure. Approximately an hour and a half west of Austin, the ranch is open during the day for a free ~30 minute drive-through, with scattered historic stops and markers. At the end of the loop, you end up at LBJ's hanger, with "Air Force One-Half," and his house, the "Texas White House." A tour of the first floor of the latter costs only $3 and provides a valuable look into LBJ's and Lady Bird's personal living and working spaces. Definitely worth the drive, especially if you combine it with stops at Enchanted Rock or Fredericksburg.
  • Well worth the visit. The staff is very friendly. It would cost you $3/adult to take the "White House" tour (kids are free). No hurry - no big crowds - mostly peaceful. Great 1900s working farm. A few hours well spent.
