Located within walking distance of the RIverWalk, this is a must-see part of the state's (and our nation's) history. Spend 30 minutes wandering the grounds and the well-curated displays that tell the story.

It's the Alamo! Of course you should visit if in San Antonio! It is full of historic information and architectual detail. Go, enjoy, take it all in. You'll be glad you did!

Wonderfully kept piece of American history. Kids will be underwhelmed but you will have to fill them in on the significance. Visit late afternoon just before closing when the crowds have subsided.

nice break around the Alamo but with the Riverwalk just a few blocks away, not much here! Good to rest before going into the Alamo.

I always enjoy strolling around Alamo Plaza. The Alamo is a historic heritage site and has a lot to offer if you actually go inside and take a self-guided tour or tour with an actual Alamo Guide. The site is big and has gardens area and is nestled in between the historic Menger Hotel and the historic Emily Morgan Hotel.... More
