“Wonderful Day Trip from San Antonio”

Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2018

First: our GPS led us down a private road and got us all kinds of lost-follow the signs for the State and National LBJ park. We went on our trip to San Antonio with our 3 kids (2, 6, 8). We all loved it. The visit started with the Living Farm that reenacts farm life from 1915. We all enjoyed helping to make butter, getting eggs from the chicken coop, and talking with the friendly staff. The self-guided driving tour was easy to follow and very interesting. There were cows running alongside our car! The tour of the Texas White House was interesting and the place just felt unique-I highly recommend this state and national park (plus it's cheap $3 for adults and free for 17 and under).

We enjoyed the tour of the ranch and the Texas White House tour was exceptional. I highly recommend if you are in the area.

The National Park is seperate to the State Park and both are worth visiting. The National Park enables you to visit Lyndon B Johnson's home - 'the white house of the south.' First you stop at the state park to get your parking permit. While there spend some time visiting the Sauer-Beckmann Farmstead, which is a living history farm (rangers/volunteers dress for the early 1900s and work the farm with all of the tools from back then). Once you have your parking permit, you then drive to the LBJ National Park. Along the drive there are several stops you can make, including LBJ's birthplace and graveyard. Ask the State Park rangers (where you get your parking pass) about the best time to get on a tour of the house. When we arrived a large tour bus had just headed down to the house for their tour and we were wisely told to wait an hour before heading down. We then drove straight to the house, bypassing the stops, made it straight on a house tour. After the house tour we enjoyed all of the stops on the way back out of the park. The house is interesting. I particularly enjoyed seeing the office area where LBJ worked during his presidency as well as his unusual collection of cars. The living and dining areas were closed for preservation work when we visited. We were, however, allowed to walk through these two areas so that we could see them, but the furniture was stored under covers. Interesting visit - especially for US history buffs.

Enjoyed the ranch at least as much as the house tour. Beautiful animals. House tour shows how much simpler times were not that long ago. Worth the time to visit. PS, I'll wager that the wife and I are some of the few to visit Both President Johnsons' homes (Andrew's in Greeneville Tn ),

Make sure to get the cd to listen as you drive through this working ranch. Great history for all, young and old. We enjoyed learning more about the Johnson family and seeing the car that can swim.
