Best known as the hometown of President Lyndon B. Johnson, it was named for his pioneer ancestors. Johnson City is in the heart of the Texas Hill Country wine region. Several world-class artists call this home, and many more are represented in local art galleries. Events include Market Days, Last Saturday Art Walk, Blanco County Youth Stock Show in January, and We Got Yer Goat Cook-off in September. Lights Spectacular "Hill Country Style" runs Thanksgiving through New Year's Day, and features it 100,000 lights on the Blanco County Courthouse.
