It is definitely a must go if you are around San Antonio. Its pretty good way to experience and actually see the history of San Antonio. Plus the fact that is free makes it even better. At first I have no intentions neither was I interested in going in, but once I got in I was actually impress. I was able to see some pictures, and also see some tools that were use during those times. The Alamo is unique experience and everyone should visit. You can either go for entertainment purposes or for knowledge purposes. I can guaranteed you would not regret visiting the Alamo. The Alamo has something for everyone either you like walking, or you just like history, the Alamo should be in your bucket list. They also provide a place where you can see a documentary if you are into them. Also something else that impress me was that restrooms were really clean even though they were public restrooms. So if you are thinking of visiting San Antonio do not forget to past over the Alamo, also I do not think your wallet would mind spending zero dollars, yes zero dollars because it is free. Take your family and take a trip into the past.
What’s more historic to Texas than the Alamo? It’s a great way to revisit the past and learn. Always very clean and well kept. Enjoy your day walking through the buildings and watch a historical video on the Alamo. Love the gift shop, great items for a good cost! Also, it’s conveniently located across from the River Walk so make a day out of it!
