“Home of the Alamo”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Anyone not having been here before should go. The plaza surrounds the Aalamo and is a nice area in the middle of downtown San Antonio. We were there last weekend and even though it's very busy it also peaceful. Be sure not to miss this as it important to Texas history.

“Alamo”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The Alamo is a very significant historical attraction. I had no idea how small it was, and how many people where killed. It is a true testament to the strength of the men and women who died for freedom. If you go you should definitely watch the informational video and walk the grounds. If you go to Texas it is a must see!

“EXCEPTIONAL!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

One of the Hearts Of America! There is not enough that can be said about one of the best historical sites in America. The feeling you get from a visit is overwhelmingly Pro-American and Pro-Texas. I have been there multiple times over the years, and I always find it inspiring. DO NOT MISS this monument to Great Americans.

“Sobering history”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This is a must see attraction in San Antonio. This is a battleground and historic memorial to the brave men and women who lived and fought here. I learned quite a bit just from the displays inside and you will also want to watch the 15 minute film that is part of the experience.

We picked a great time to take a little date weekend. The weather was awesome. The plaza was a wonderful place to walk around.
