There are many good things on the same side of the road where Alamo is located. First of all, visiting Alamo is "free." Parking near Alamo plaza is reasonable, i.e. $10 for 12 hours. After Alamo, you can walk a block down to River Center...More

Tons of tshirt shops, couple of restaurants, trolley tours. Ripleys museum on the square also. Neat shop Del Sol where everything turns different colors in the sun, but is a little more expensive. Visitor's center also located here.

The radical, left wing Berkley-esque, out of control City Council of San Antonio has designed despicable plans to "Reimagine the Alamo". They will wall it in, control access and egress and just ruin it.

See it now before it changes. BIG changes are coming in the next few years. Store fronts will be replaced with museums. A wall will surround the Alamo. Just hope you still be able to go at night as it's so pretty.

Rich history - come and take it! Great place to soak in all the sights. Be sure to checkout the basement and ask for pee-wee bike.

The grounds containing the Alamo are well preserved and maintained and depict the history of the battle of the Alamo. There is a lot to see here for anyone interested in the history of the battle of the Alamo.

Many visitors are underwhelmed at the first site of the Alamo. They are thinking only of the church. Yes, it was a mission, like many of the other missions in the area. The rest of the fort covers a coupe of acres. It was there...More

This gives a great perspective on how the State of Texas ended up being in the US versus in Mexico. If Santa Anna hadn't been so greedy Texas could well be in Mexico at this time. This mission was a spot where a lot of...More
