Centrally located on Alamo Plaza in downtown San Antonio, the Alamo features interactive tours and exhibits and hosts reenactments of the Texas Revolution. Founded in 1718 as the first mission in San Antonio, the Alamo served as a way station between east Texas and Mexico. In 1836, decades after the mission had closed, the Alamo became an inspiration and a motivation for liberty during the Texas Revolution. Today, visiting groups are invited to rediscover the gem of Texas history, stroll through the 4.2-acre complex and Alamo Gardens, then head back down to the River Walk for local experiences in dining, shopping and entertainment. Plan your next unique group adventure today.
