My husband and I visited the Alamo for the first time in 2012. I was excited but in another way disappointed at the same time. I expected the Alamo to be larger than the actual site. It was historical though. I had seen movies in the past about the Alamo, guess that's why I thought the Alamo was bigger that the actual Alamo!!Still a good trip visiting the Alamo where Texas won their independence from Mexico in 1859! The Alamo was free to enter only required a donation.At the front door of the Alamo a lady was standing at the entrance taking pictures of each couple , etc. . At the end of the tour if you wanted to , the pictures were on sale at the Alamo gift shop.
