If you have any interest in US history, you will really enjoy a visit. While the Western White House was still closed, walking the grounds is still enjoyable. Even if you don’t care about history, the ranch itself is pretty. Best of all, there is no charge to visit.

Easy access to town, close to Lady Bird Cafe for takeout and a park nearby. We didn’t go to the ranch but would like to once it’s fully open.

Johnson City was actually named for some of LBJ's ancestors and this homestead and surrounding park gives an excellent view of when, why and how it happened. Beautiful grounds with a lengthy walking trail (we clocked it at over 2 miles). Not to be missed is the small frontier cabin where Lucy Johnson (LBJ's daughter), gives a wonderful recorded story of LBJ's grandparents and their dealings with the rough frontier life and Indian encounters. Free and wonderful to see.

We enjoyed the park the best we could despite the heavy rain, LBJ app not working, and the Texas White House being close due to structural issues. We were able to walk around the hangar and the plane, walk around the house, and get inside the gift shop.

We came a few years ago, the experience was much better since they lended us an audio CD for the self-tour and we were able to tour the inside of the house.

We began our Saturday visit during COVID19 at the LBJ State Park where the state park ranger gave us detailed maps and driving instructions for both the State Park and the LBJ National Historical Park. Terrific information from friendly staff! There is no cost to tour the State Park or the LBJ National Historical Park, but there is a fee to tour the Texas White House, when it is available.

Cross the Pedernales River and enter the LBJ Ranch, aka LBJ National Historical Park. First we saw the one-room old schoolhouse, then the reconstructed LBJ birthplace across the road from the Johnson Family Cemetery where the late President and his Lady Bird rest beneath beautiful huge trees!

Then we drove thru the pastures, past the show barn and airstrip to the airplane hangar and the display of the Lockheed Jet Star the President call Air Force One-Half (no entrance permitted due to COVID19)!

Also closed due to COVID19 were the Communications Trailers, Secret Service Command Post, Martin Barn and Klein Shop, so we definitely have a reason to return once they all reopen.

Unfortunately, no tours of the Texas White House due to structural damage. We were able to walk around the house staying outside the walled fence.

This was a phenomenal tour getting a glimpse of a bit over 1,500 beautiful acres (the large trees are magnificent) which remains a working ranch!
