Don't miss the River Walk. It's pretty neat.

You could also book a hunt for feral hogs at a nearby ranch.

Boy did Hollywood mess me up on the Alamo!

Sure not like the movies show it but one of the most special places I have ever been. Now the Mexicans can shot down into it, no cannon needed.

Hope you have a good trip.

KT - been down sick, hence the late remarks.
I visited the Alamo close to 13 years ago. Yeah, it's way different now from what Hollywood makes it out to be. Weird being in there surrounded by the tall buildings. But I'd like to go back sometime.

Iowa,

hope you feeling better.

The Alamo is one of the most special places I have ever been. To know the history of the men that gave their life there makes you realize how special some events are and those that made such a scarafice.

Hey,
San Antoino was a great vist. The people that live there have to be most friendly on the planet. I am not talking about the hotel and restaurant workers, its the average joes or joses.
The river walk is surly the place to go to see San Antoino. There are two kind of tours by boat. The first tour is one trip around the river walk by boat. The other is a kind of taxi, 24hr pass is the way to go with this one. They pick you up and drop you off any place along the walk for 24 hrs. It is very lush with all kinds of different plants and animals visiualy rich in different sights. It is a grand canyon, except with buildings.
The Alamo kind of took your breath away when you entered the doors. Just being on Hallowed ground does something to you. Also, and quite a shock there is no charge to see the Alamo or to stroll the grounds. The gift shop is another story. When you walk out of the Regency hotel down town the Alamo is right there. It looks as if they built the town around It. Very tall buildings everwhere. And for those who do not know the Alamo is still surrounded by Mexicans.

I did not get to make the hog hunt, anyway I can shoot them off my front porch. I had the wife with me and we went to see my daughters graduation from AirForce Basic training.
