San Antonio, Texas is where the battle for The Alamo took place between the Mexican army and Texans fighting for independence. To find this historical site, park on one of the numerous parking lots near the Rivercenter Mall. The Alamo is located on Alamo Plaza St. [North Alamo Street] between East Crockett Street and East Houston Street. Some of the parking lots are small and it takes time to find a good parking space. However, walking a few extra blocks is worth it, especially if you park on North Alamo Street near the First Presbyterian Church; most of the time there’s a spot available on the street for the standard parking meter fee. From there, walk south 4 blocks on North Alamo St. to get to The Alamo and the River Walk; the street’s name changes to Alamo Plaza but it’s the same street.
