In Texas Hill Country, stop by LBJ Ranch, stay at Lady Bird RV Campground

On numerous trips over the years to the Texas Hill Country (dating back to my college days a couple decades ago at the University of Texas) theĀ Lyndon Baines Johnson National Historical Park, has always been a favorite destination.

I have memories in the 1980s with my father, James Grandin, of standing on the front porch of President Johnson’s birthplace home; of traveling to the grounds 20 years later looking for Bluebonnets with my sister, Nancy Jean Butler, and of visiting as an Snowbird RVer.

The Ranch is a wonderful place to pull off the road for a couple of hours and walk or drive through history. For more information, click a recent entry of mine on RV Short Stops.

Three years ago, Jimmy and I stopped at the Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park / Campground, just three miles south of Fredericksburg, TX, on State Highway 16.
