One of the reasons to visit San Antonio.

We enjoyed the experience of the Alamo, we had visited many years ago. The Bowie exhibit was great. Thank you... We look forward to visiting the location again.

I passed through here several times a day night and day and there always seemed to be something going on in this plaza. In front it, there benches and trees if you want to sit and people watch while eating gelato or ice cream. Right in front of the Alamo, there are plenty of plaques so make sure you take... More

A visit to the Alamo is to learn the lessons of honor, courage, sacrifice and patriotism. Everyone who visits San Antonio or Texas should include a visit to the Alamo. Please include your children; it will show them what it means to be a American.

I've made an effort to visit the Alamo on every trip to San Antonio. Each time I'm awed by the history and significance. It's easy to get to there is plenty of nearby parking and many more things to see, eat and do in the area.

The plaza is a nice place to hang out, relax and enjoy a couple of hours of quiet time. Since the Alamo is there, a lot of people tend to congregate here which makes it more interesting.

The Alamo plaza, fronting the Alamo is a large open space with memorials and signage detailing events and people. There is a huge monument, erected in 1936 that is so massive, it cant be caught on film whole. Across the street is also a piece of the original wall (located at the entrance to riverwalk). What makes it a tourist... More

We had a great time reviewing the history of the Alamo. We have been at the Alamo 10 years ago and had the children with us and didn't take time to read all the history. This time we stopped and read the history.

This seems to have lost something with all of the "tourist" things around it. The Alamo, itself, is wonderful, but the Plaza is a bit much.
