The next stop on our 101 Places to See tour is A LEGENDARY LOCATION.
For Fall Break 2007 we visited our good friends Tom and Lorie in San Antonio, Texas. It was such a wonderful trip. We had never been to San Antonio and it was really great to tour it with friends who know it so well. One of our first stops was The Alamo.
I was amazed that The Alamo sits in downtown San Antonio. I assumed it was out a ways in the middle of a dusty part of Texas. But, no, right in the middle of town with palm trees all around. Boys, did you like that I dressed you in matching shirts? :)
We walked all around The Alamo and watched a video about the terrible battle that happened there.
While Thomas's favorite part of our trip was Sea World, Brennan still says his favorite part was visiting The Alamo. He enjoys seeing the real places that he reads about, just like me.
From the Book
#83 - A Legendary Location
The Alamo. The OK Corral. Chances are that even if you don't know what happened there, you've heard of these legendary places. Through the years, the stories about their history has been embellished so much that no one can say for sure what's fact and what's fiction. So mane a visit and try to sort it out for yourself. See a re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party at the Old South Meeting House in Boston, or of the shoot-out at the OK Corral in Tombstone. Visit Sleepy Hollow, the place where teh headless horseman was said to ahve made his legendary ride. Being in such a legendary place makes you feel like you're part of history.
