The Alamo

300 Alamo Plaza, San Antonio, Texas, 78205

The Basics

To understand early Texas history and Texan independence, a visit to the Alamo is essential. Visitors are free to tour the grounds on their own or sign up for a guided or audio tour. The mission complex is a stop on most sightseeing and hop-on hop-off bus tours, which often include stops at Mission San Jose, Market Square, and Mission Concepción.

Travelers can even combine a visit to the Alamo with a cruise along the San Antonio River Walk, or, for those interested in the Alamo's ghostly residents, visit the complex as part of a haunted San Antonio tour.

Segway Tour in San Antonio was fantastic!
Our safe, knowledgeable, and friendly guide was Joseph. He made sure we were comfortable on the Segway and then treated us to a comprehensive introduction to San Antonio. He gave us interesting historical information, as well as ideas for shopping, nightlife,, and restaurants. The Segway tour was the perfect way to start our visit to San Antonio.

When to Get There

While the Alamo is open year-round (with the exception of December 25, Christmas Day), many travelers prefer visiting in the off-peak season between early September and early March, mainly due to cooler weather and sparser crowds. Try getting there first thing in the morning or at dusk when the mission is beautifully lit.

Diving into History at the Alamo

The Alamo's regular calendar of events features free history talks several times per day in the Calvary Courtyard, as well as living history presentations that sometimes include period impressions and live demonstrations of fire starting, leatherworking, or textile making. A 17-minute film telling the 300-year Alamo story is shown in the Long Barracks Theater and the Alamo Arbor.
