Jacob's Review:
   This is where they had a war in the cowboy days. Jim Bowie and Davey Crockett got shot there. The building is still there - but some of it fell down.

Dad's Notes:
   The Alamo is the center of San Antonio Downtown area. Surrounded by Museums, markets, attractions and, of course, the riverwalk. The pretty Alamo grounds and gardens are nice to walk through. Read about how Jim Bowie, David Crockett, and others died defending the Alamo for 13 days against General Santa Anna's Mexican Armies.

About 2.5 hours from Killeen: 190 E to I35S thru Austin to San Antonio. In San Antonio 35 splits upper and lower - go upper (although they come together again just prior to the exit). Exit 155B 'Downtown'. You are now on 'Durango St.' (Smell the BBQ). Left on S. Alamo (near the tower) go about 5 blocks the Alamo is on your right (Alamo & Houston). There is a lot of pay parking lots in the area.
