With small children it was ok. It was hot and a lot of people so we all got tired fairly quick. I'd say this is more for a family with older kids or no kids at all.

There are many sights contained within the plaza-Not Just the Alamo. There are great hotels, a mall, the river walk, and great eating places. A must visit if going to San Antonio!

We visited here during Texas independence week and had a great time. Many interesting vendors and shops abound. Take your time and sit back and people watch as well. A beautiful park, well maintained in a pleasant vibrant setting. Worth the trip from New York!

The most visited historical site in Texas, and one of America's historical "gems". A "must see" for anyone visiting the area. Put it on your bucket list! Fabulous!

As the city grew all around the Alamo, land was acquired for a memorial park to create a sense of reverence around the iconic Alamo Shrine. Today, these lush, green areas form an urban oasis that is in itself a destination. Tropical and native plants fill the space, with their shade cooling the area in the hottest summer.

We went to Alamo Plaza and visited the alamo. This is a free attraction. Lots of history but the bad part is you are unable to take pictures inside.

Come by just after the museum closes and its a peaceful spot. Walk around and look at the historical markers, monuments to Bonham and Bowie or just sit back and relax on the stone walls.

Alamo Plaza is of course a crowded place, but also one of many recreation areas in San Antonio Downtown. You can visit the Alamo and the area around the Alamo in several hours. On the Plaza, there is a monument for the heroes. But we missed the dane, Charles Zanko ?
