Best Place From Which to Wave to the Masses

Balcony of the Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson Presidential Suite, Driskill Hotel

So you're not Eva Perón. You don't have a full orchestra to accompany your spontaneous operatic outbursts; your last presidential proclamation was to your sixth grade Spanish club (that time both members were in attendance), and your delicate wrists haven't taken well to repetitive motions. Well, you still may not be able to resist the urge to wave magnanimously when you step out onto the second-floor balcony over Sixth & Brazos. LBJ wasn't close to becoming president when he met Lady Bird at the hotel's dining room for their first date in 1934; going by his example, you still have plenty of time after a visit to the Driskill to work out your presidential aspirations.
