Some things best represent Texas more than anything else. On my must see list starting at my number one choice is the Alamo. World over, everyone has heard the phase "Remember the Alamo" as Texas fought for her independence from Mexico. The building today is a monument to those who gave the greatest gift to freedom. We can also credit that the Mission which became the fort for these Texans was saved by the Daughters of the Texas Republic. In the 1930's, the city of San Antonio was thinking about leveling the old mission to the ground for downtown development. Had it not been for the Daughters of the Republic, we may have won victory for Texas freedom, but would have lost the greatest monument towards mans freedom.
Come view the Alamo
The city also has one of the nations best Zoo's just minutes from downtown.

We visited the Buckhorn Saloon. This is a must place to have lunch while in San Antonio:
