Best Gazing In The Grass

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

The graceful oasis in far Southwest Austin is the embodiment of Lady Bird herself: serene, natural, friendly, and charming. The Wildflower Center is the realization of a dream Mrs. Johnson had, and it has come to fruition in a way that exceeded our considerable expectations. It is a favorite site for weddings and other special occasions as the scenery cannot be beat and the facilities lend a uniquely Texan festivity to any event. Classes in a variety of things botanical have reached out to the citizens to share Lady Bird's passion. And the gift shop has some of the most sought-after items around. The most wonderful feature of all, though, is that it manages to capture the beloved spirit of its cherished namesake.
