    Not much to say about the Alamo. It was pretty cool, old and an interesting and bloody battle happened there. For the US that seems like a rare thing to be able to see. The museum is free and the interior plaza is nice with a great big awesome tree and nicely kept plants.

    Continental Club

    39 reviews

    What can be said about the legendary Continental Club that most live music lovers don't know? Of course, Stevie Ray Vaughn got his start here, when he was just "little Stevie". But so did many others, well-known and not-so-well-known. And the greats still play the place regularly, some for old-times' sake, some in gratitude for their start, and some just ...

    Six Flags Fiesta Texas

    39 reviews

    Great for a day of fun with the family. If you live close by would suggest getting a season pass because it's almost the same price. Food can get expensive. There is a variety of rides and attractions for all ages. The water park is a good way to cool down in the summer.
