  • This was what started my presidential library tour across America. It’s very easy to visit this one from my hometown of Houston. It’s conveniently located on the SMU campus and currently this is the newest library. With it being the most modern they have built it with all of the technology that comes with a modern library. Also, this was the first President that was around during my early adult years. Even though I was at an age I could remember I totally forgot all of the events that occurred during his presidency. The library does a good job of highlighting those key events. A must see presidential library!
  • Lots to see, do, read, watch, listen to. We spent 4 hours there and enjoyed the whole visit! Could do in less time if you do not read everything but all was so interesting. They had a special exhibit, there through February, I think on Presidential Retreats which was fun as we saw Walker’s Point a year and a half ago. Fun to learn about their ranch and see family photos.
