I make it a point to visit National Parks/Historic Sites when I visit an area. I wasn't really too excited about visiting this one, but the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historic Park far exceeded my expectations! The entire historic site is spread out between 3 locations -- the Visitor Center, boyhood home, and old family settlement in Johnson City; the state visitor center and living history farm; and finally the LBJ ranch approximately 15 miles away. I highly suggest making this an all-day excursion as there is so much to see. We only had the afternoon and were able only to visit the Visitor Center and the boyhood home tour in Johnson City, the ranch home tour, and family cemetery. The tour guides were very knowlegable, willingly answered question and made the tours very interesting and easily understandable by children. The ranch tour is like stepping back into the 1960s! There is no charge for the boyhood home tour; there is a minimal fee for adults for ranch hour tour, but it is worth every penny.
