Most people know the story of the Alamo, a San Antonio mission that was converted into a fort. Some 200 heroes fought valiantly against a giant Mexican army commanded by Santa Ana. Famous American frontiersmen Davie Crockett, Jim Bowie, and Daniel Boone were among those who were killed in the battle for Texas’ independence. Self-guided tours with audio include the chapel, fort, barracks, as well as a gift shop and arcade for the history buffs who make this the most visited historical site in the state.
