Historic Site
“The most historical part of San Antonio is its missions, and more specifically, the Alamo. If you love history this is the place for you. Many people have told me they were underwhelmed upon visiting, but remember that this was a mission built inside a fortress compound in the 18th century. It wasn’t created for tourists! Enjoy the beauty of what remains. I love it, and I also love the huge Live Oak tree in the garden area. Admission is free.”
