San Antonio- Alamo

When we went through San Antonio we stopped by the Alamo. Admission was free so we were happy that we got to save some money for the tour. We had two options, go on the Alamo tour which cost $25 dollars each. Or go on the Alamo Battle Field tour which cost only $10 each. We decided to go on the Battle Field tour to save some extra cash, so in total it would be $43.30. There are about five to six rooms in the Alamo. One of the rooms we visted was the room, that had the most blood after the battle. It’s a small room with little bench like seats, and a perjector screen in the front. Once you go in they lock the door ask you to take a seat, it can take in about eight-teen people at once. The video we watch told us the basic history on the famous Alamo battle. It talked about the people that were there, the date and time of day, any servivers and of course Santa Anna. After our tour we went out side the Alamo and took a few pictures of us standing in front of it and got some dippin dots ice cream, i got vanilla. And after that we got back on the road as our trip continued.
