Ah, be still my heart! San Antonio is not only one of my favorite cities but the Alamo is one of my favorite historic sites. I can still remember watching a movie about the battle there at the Imax across the street then walking through the gates of the Alamo envisioning the bravery and sacrifice that happened on those very stones. Men who were already legends in their own right came together to defend freedom! Remember the Alamo and the sacrifice given to preserve something greater than themselves.
Alamo Cenotaph, The Spirit of Sacrifice
Menger Bar is where Teddy Roosevelt gathered and called the Rough Riders
We didn’t look through the museum but it was a fun place to stop and just look around!
I fell in love with the King Williams Historic District with all its old houses and history!
Guenther House was built by the founder of Pioneer Flour Mills for his family and is now a cute museum and restaurant.
Something new we did that I highly recommend is take a boat ride down the River Walk. We learned so much history we had never heard and the views from the water were so beautiful!
And of course a trip to Texas wouldn’t be complete without some Blue Bell ice cream to round out the day before driving to the airport and flying home!
