History


Former President of the United States, Lyndon B. Johnson and First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, brought immense attention to their homeland of the Hill Country area when he was elected in 1963.

In 1975, two of country-western music's most iconic and influential superstars, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, released a song titled "Luckenbach, Texas" about a small town in the heart of Texas Hill Country. The song sent an immense amount of visitors down south to the Texas Hill Country San Antonio area. It didn't matter that neither singer had visited the place; what mattered was the sentiment incorporated within the song. Fans of the singers responded by visiting the beauty of the Texas flatlands, massive oak trees, never-ending fields, and crystal clear springs contained in the Hill Country area. The song gave even more meaning to the town's motto, "Everybody's somebody in Luckenbach."

"This was a great tour."
This was a great tour. However, there is not enough time to tour the nimitz museum. You need at least 2-3 hours or more if you want to do the guided tour. This was an awesome museum so we were disappointed that we did not have enough time to do it justice.

All of us in the party that went on the hill country tour had a wonderful time. So much so that my husband and i are planning another trip sometime in 2015 for just the two of us.
