OK, that was cheesy! The Alamo is worth a visit. You will also enjoy the beautiful grounds within the walls of the courtyard. Great history for all to experience.

First of all you have to take your kids. It’s not a long visit, and hour and a half will do. There’s a movie theater next door that tells the story and is great for kids.

I'm glad we stopped this historical place however it was not very exciting. It's a part of history but really not much to see.

Be prepared for something smaller than you imagined, but larger than life. People died here for a cause, which isn’t something seen everyday. The Plaza around the Alamo will be changed in a few years to reflect this history. It’s still worth the trip.

It turned out to be spring break and was way overcrowded. Waited over 20 minutes for the women’s room. Bad timing on our part.

I took the guided tour and was glad I did. The guide was very well educated on the Alamo and had many interesting details. I was totally surprised on the size of the original compound, much if which now consists of sections of wall.

If he is a true service dog yes, if he attacks or bits anyone there is a $5,000 starting fine. I have a service dog.
