Lake LBJ is officially known as Lake Lyndon B Johnson. It is located in the Texas Hill Country on the Colorado River just an hour northwest of Austin, Texas.

It is also a popular destination for a weekend of water sports such as wakeboarding, skiing, boating, fishing, and much more. Come and celebrate the 4th of July with a grand annual firework display over Lake LBJ.

Lake LBJ is a perfect getaway location for your Fourth of July celebration.

Besides the firework displays over the lake, there are plenty of other activities for the entire family including boat parades, water skiing, fishing, and swimming among others.

Take time to explore the countryside or even hike the Enchanted Rock during the day as you wait for the grand firework display at night.
