Without a doubt, the attraction that places San Antonio's name on the map. "Alamo" actually means cottonwood, the native poplar. The city's first Spanish mission, today its ruins serve more as a shrine to the brave defenders who fell in battle in March of 1836 during the struggle for independence from Mexico.

After walking through the skimpy display of Old West props and cowboy tools, a narrator recounted the history of San Antonio from painted murals, which were illuminated at the mention of each incident. The music swelled and lights flashed on and off; grandparents were stunned but for a few minutes the kids were enthralled. Then, both live actors and extremely ethereal -- but captivating -- holograms of Alamo participants read letters and diaries about the 13-day siege. Though the multimedia elements were uneven in quality, the experience successfully conveyed the Alamo's human drama to everyone. See more at Family Travel Forum: http://bit.ly/hYHsni
