Time to visit Texas. This is an American treasure chest of history. I had the pleasure of bringing some students here. We were able to enjoy past American history, that alerted our thinking of what the US was like at its humble beginnings. This is definitely a tourist attraction especially for families. The guided tour is excellent. This was the spot of a great battle ground many years ago. It is filled with nostalgia characterizing what was happening at that time. It is worth the time, lines, heat, parking and food. I would do it again. Go online for the specific details. Visit soon. Cool place!!! I'm wondering how hot it is there today!
As a descendant of a defender of the Alamo, i feel great honor to walk the grounds and see tourist share my family and our city history. A place where my ancestor stood their ground and fought for freedom and died so that our family and many other families could live free with better opportunities as Texans then Americans. Very informative and i believe its one of the few birth places contributing to our TEXAN Pride. "REMEMBER THE ALAMO."
