we really enjoyed touring the President and First Lady's home. So interesting and well maintained. The tour guides are friendly and very knowledgeable. Only $3 to tour, but fees were waived the day we went.

Got to see where LBJ did much of his work in his office at the ranch. His cars are there as well as the small jet he used to get to the ranch.
