I was surprised to see how small it was compared to all the movies are about it!
Lots of picture opportunities with hotel right in the square!

Remember what OZZY did here? No sign of it anywhere. A very nice plaza and short tour. Secret tour is pretty cool too.

Nice statue just outside the plaza but everything else here is a tourist trip. Wax museum .. check... candy store ... check... 3D experisnce... check. You get the drift. Come for the Alamo not the other junk.

If you’re tired of eating restaurant and hotel food, pack a light lunch and head to the little plaza in front of the Alamo! You can sit in the shade, people watch, enjoy a snack, and drink in the historic atmosphere. It’s the perfect little place to take a rest, and our kids enjoyed watching the horses and carriages. It’s also right near some tourist brochure agents, so you can pick up tourist info.

This is a nice place to sit and rest in the shade and enjoy a cool drink or some ice cream while you gaze upon one the most historic spots in the United States, namely the Alamo. Here's a tip: There's a $5 per day parking lot right behind the Scottish Rite Auditorium, at Ave E and 4th Street, only two short blocks from the Alamo. Most other lots charge $10, $15, or even $20 a day that are no closer and in some cases even further!
