The Alamo


Luckily for us, we were able to jump back in time and experience life as it was back in the early beginnings of Texas. The curator of the Alamo allowed me to experience first-hand how to load and fire a black-powder gun. The blast literally threw me! It was quite an experience.


Look for numerous speaker boxes that are located around The Alamo. These speaker boxes give out tons of information, facts, and interesting details about The Alamo. Additionally, we suggest that you make sure to stop by the Visitors office located across from the Alamo itself for even more information about San Antonio.


We did a lot of research for the show! Though we couldn’t visit every destination, we did want to show you what else we found.

Currently undergoing renovation and scheduled to reopen in Spring 2014, Scobee Planetarium has something for everyone to enjoy. The Planetarium shows three high-definition, interactive shows daily. The first presentation, called The Little Star That Could,” introduces children to the family of planets. “The Secret Lives of Stars,” is the second show, during which children learn about stars and how they live and die. The final presentation is called “Extreme Planets” and introduces newly discovered planets that exist far beyond our own sun. With these interactive presentations running every Friday from Fall through Spring, where else would you want to spend your Friday night?
