2. The Alamo

Remember the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. This well-preserved mission stands as a historic monument to the 1836 battle that saw the death of all the Texan defenders. Although the battle was a loss for Texas, it spurred inspiration in Texans and led to the ultimate defeat of the Mexican army. Entrance to the Alamo Church and its grounds is free, but for a fee, you can get a guided tour or audio tour.
