Go on a one-day guided excursion from San Antonio and get the full Texas Hill Country experience. You’ll see Lyndon B. Johnson’s boyhood home and tour the LBJ Ranch (also known as the “Texas White House”), see the influence of German migration in a historic German town, make a stop in the storied musical town of Luckenback, and visit an award-winning winery (optional).
Travel along beautiful backroads of the Texas Hill Country and hear about the role of the Texas cowboy and the great cattle drives from South Texas to mid-western markets as you make your way to the first stop at Johnson City. Here, you’ll visit the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park Visitor Center and see the boyhood home before heading to the LBJ Ranch, otherwise known as the “Texas White House,” and your guide will tell you all about the legacies of both LBJ, America’s 36th President, and his wife, Claudia “Lady Bird” Taylor.
You’ll learn about the German migration of the 1840s and 1850s and then get to see its influence on the surrounding areas, including the old German town of Fredericksburg, where you’ll have free time and can choose to have lunch at a German restaurant and biergarten, attend a wine tasting, or visit the Nimitz Museum and National Museum of the Pacific War.
Next, make a stop in the town of Luckenbach, a storied town which inspired lots of musical talent, including Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P. Nunn, Hondo Crouch, and many more. The last stop on the tour will be to a picturesque and award-winning winery to learn about the development of the Texas wine industry.
