it is a no brainer. your first stop ever in san antonio has to be the alamo. there is so much history and significance there that you have to visit it at least once in life. you cant help but to be in awe in a place like that.

do not expect to park in a blocks' distance from the alamo. parking can be a hassle in downtown in general since the streets are so narrow. so be prepared to park and walk.

and also visit the vistor's center right across the street from the alamo. they have valuable coupons and maps and great information that will help you get around town.

Pros: history

I have made the trip many times, learning more each time. I just returned from taking my two boys for there first time to see one of the birthplaces of texas freedom. I highly recommend a trip to The Alamo, were some amazing bravery took place on both sides of those walls. You cant help but feel the sheer weight of what they faced for 13 days inside that compound. By the most conservative accounts they were out number 10 to 1.

Cons: Parking

The Alamo is something everyone should visit. The history is so interesting and the place is very well kept. The story is a tragic one and it's amazing to actually stand in such a historic place. I would also suggest going to see the other missions in the area because they are all part of the same story. It's great to see something like the Alamo being preserved.

I have been happily living in San Antonio for a few years now. The weather is ideal - my wife and I prefer the hot Summers and mild Winters. The Alamo is enjoyable through any season and is easily accessible. It's location is perfect - adjacent to the River Walk and close to many top notch restaurants. Great photo location and place to bring the kids. Highly recommended place to visit.

I've been going there since early childhood in the 1950s. Yes I had a Davy Crocket coonskin hat. It wasn't until adulthood that I really understood the significance of these grounds. Now I begin to tear up at the sight of this place knowing what selfless bravery can accomplish. I received a Texas flag that was hoisted here for my 50th birthday. Something I will cherish forever.

Pros: everything

The Alamo is Mecca for Texans. The holiest (in a patriotic sense) site in Texas. It is where a relatively few men took a final stand and fought for their freedom and self-determination, despite the fatal onslaught a vast Mexican Army commanded by a brutal tyrant. Although the site is now swarming with tourists and in the middle of a large city, it is still our holy shrine.

I enjoyed the grounds of the Alamo so much I went there every day while we were in San Antonio. Twice or more some days. It was peaceful, cool and shady. It is a shrine, so the atmosphere is different from most attractions. I highly recommend that every visitor to San Antonio see the Alamo and just relax there for a while.

How fortunate to have a major piece of Texas history within the confines of the RIverwalk and well kept up despite the large numbers of people visiting the site daily! The storytellers at the side of the Alamo are the best part of the attraction and make the audience really get a good representation of the history that makes up the Alamo.

Every time we visit the Alamo, we remember that Texas wouldn't be the great state it is without their sacrifice, although foohardy as it was.

The Background
