This was the best way to relax and enjoy a couple of hours in San Antonio. The best money spent and it wasn't as expensive as other downtown spas. I highly recommend everyone dr...

This is just something you should check out when you're in San Antonio. I have to admit, it wasn't what I imagined, being in the heart of downtown. Depending on the time of year and day, it can be busy, but I usually go on a weekend when school is in session. It is air conditioned inside and there's a beautiful monument outside. more

A 'must visit' historical site 8/21/2005

This place is a must if you ever visit San Antonio, Texas. The name pretty much speaks for itself. If you have the time, I would recommend listening to the speaker who talks a little about the history of the place by the signature book. You can either have a tour guide or walk through the place yourself which doesn’t take long. Their gift shop is also worth taking a look. more

The Alamo is a historical site... 8/12/2005

that I believe everyone has heard of . The Alamo is located in the center of downtown San Antonio. Parking is an issue and you will probably have to use a Pay to Park parking lot. The grounds of the Alamo are lovely and feature many native Texas trees. The actual Alamo is interesting for those interested in history but tends to be quite crowded. The long barracks house the most interesting historical memorabilia and there is an interesting short film about the historical significance of the Alamo. The gift shop also has additional displays and historical diaromas. more

Disappointing 8/5/2005

When I first came to San Antonio, I kept on hearing that I should go downtown and visit the Alamo. This is probably one of the biggest disappoints ever. There really isn’t anything interesting there. The parking downtown is terrible, I went on a weekend and had to pay $10 just for an hour. It really isn’t that much fun. On a positive note, it is free to go visit the Alamo and it is air conditioned inside. more

Alamo 8/4/2005

A great trip for the family! This can get boring though after many times and tends to be an overdone visitor site. It seems cooler ni textbooks than it really is in real life! Everyone should visit it once but it is not a place that you need to frequent often! more

Editorial

  • The Background
    Mission San Antonio de Valero, now known as the Alamo, was built by the Spanish in 1718. It gained its reputation as the "cradle of Texas liberty" during a bloody battle between settlers (including Davy Crockett) and the Mexican government in 1836. Although the American resistance at the Alamo was quashed (yes, we lost), the clash, and others like it, inspired the ousting of Mexican rule in the territory a few months later and the subsequent birth of the Republic of Texas.

    The Experience
    The landmark is smaller than most folks imagine, dwarfed further by the modern skyline and neighboring fast-food joints. Wander the grounds independently or follow the displays, tours and movie to learn about the events that led to the historic battle. An amazingly large gift shop sells items to help visitors remember the Alamo forever.
