I have visited multiple times and looked and looked but have not found a basement. I have asked multiple Alamo workers and the Texas Rangers working and no one has seen a basement. There are some fish to feed you leftovers from restaurants.

Yes, the crowds are large and the wait can be long; yet, all is worth while when you come across the names of the heros and listen to the intelligent tourguides explain the battle in both spanish and english---it makes Texas seem special among the 50 states.

My kids love to learn about history. When we went the first time we went from plaque to plaque reading everything. My daughter soaked it all up and the next time we went she led a "tour" explaining everything to us. I've seen the Alamo about 10 times now, and it never gets old, there is always something else to... More

This is a must see in San Antonio. To be inside the Alamo and just feel the history of what happen here at the Alamo. The Alamo itself is small but it's great to read and see what stories it holds. Around the mission there is a gift shop and short films as well as small museums. It's right near... More

This is such a beautiful and serene place (if you can ignore the tourists on the grounds.) The actual building is like going into a cathedral or other sacred space. the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. For a place that is located in the middle of a big city, it still manages to maintain that sense of history and... More

At a conference, we walked around the city. We went by the Alamo, which is in a little plaza in the heart of the city. It was crowded the day I was there, so I only saw the outside. There is a mall very close with a good food court kind of behind the plaza.

Only takes an hour or two, but well worth it. We were quite surprised to see it in the middle of the city.

Was very disappointed in the Alamo. When I went in 2006 it was organized and the cases were filled with Intresting things that have since been removed. This go around It was overly crowded inside with no real direction to walk, people were just walking everywhere and pushing. The cases were filled with rusted bullets with no disciption. Also they...

Our family does a lot of traveling and the Alamo is a favorite. We've been to San Antonio a few times and always visit the Alamo. It can be hot in the summer, this last time we were there in December and it was plenty cool and still just as busy.
