Hikers, bikers, dog-walkers, and sightseers! The City of Austin and The Trail Foundation announce the grand opening of the long-awaited Boardwalk extension of Austin’s hike-and-bike trail.
Lady Bird Johnson, the first lady best-known for her love of wildflowers and programs to beautify the nation’s roadsides, was also famous for the desserts she served at the White House and at the Johnsons’ “Texas White House” in Johnson City. Here’s her simple recipe for peach ice cream.
The legacy of the late Lady Bird Johnson lives on in the dozens of beautification and environmental projects that enjoy success today thanks to her vision and dedication. She once noted, “Wherever I go in America, I like it when the land speaks its own language in its own regional accent.” There’s no better way to honor the former first lady than to enjoy some of the many places in Texas that made her smile.
