VISITING THE ALAMO ~ San Antonio, Texas

I took a few days off work to visit the Texas coast and decided to swing by San Antonio on the way home.  Since we would only be there a short period of time, we decided to the see the Alamo and the famous Riverwalk.  

The Alamo is the heart of San Antonio and it is Texas' most visited historic landmark.  There is not a lot to see but the historic significance makes it worth the visit. 

Home of the famous 1836 battle and to living history demonstrations and special events throughout the year, the beautiful 300-year-old former Spanish mission turned fortress is open year-round for families, school groups and everyone to visit, experience the battlefield first hand, and "remember the Alamo."

The worst part of venturing into downtown San Antonio is the parking.  There are several parking areas around the Alamo but they require a parking fee.  Just as a side note:  The parking area we went to did not give back change so we ended up pay $20 for a 3 hour period of time.

Here are some parking areas around the Alamo.  You may want to print this out and take it with you.

Here is a picture of my beautiful daughter and grandson.

And here is a sneak peek inside the gift shop.

This is the street area in front of the Alamo.  You will need to cross this street to get to the Riverwalk.

The Alamo has a website where you can check it out for detailed / current information.
