Texas History Tour

Texas History, LBJ, Bob Bullock, Texas State Capitol, Tour

Everything’s bigger in Texas, including our history!

Texas is a large state with a big history, much of which is gloriously celebrated in Austin. Our Texas History Tour provides a continuous shuttle between three of the city’s major attractions so you can soak up the nostalgia at your own pace. First stop is the magnificent State Capitol building with its manicured grounds and awe-inspiring dome, the place where state lawmakers have plied their trade since 1886. We’ll then jump to the 1930s when a young Lyndon Baines Johnson emerged on the scene as a teacher and local politician…and future President of the United States. At the LBJ Library and Presidential Museum we’ll discover LBJ’s public and private life, including the JFK years, the Vietnam War, the Great Society, and more. We wrap things up at the extensive Bob Bullock Texas History Museum, where we’ll discover the important events and people that shaped the Lone Star State.
