During your getaways in Texas you have to visit the following attractions: Alamo, which is located in San Antonio, the Alamo is, after all, what most people think of when they think of Texas.

Formal tours are offered, but visitors are also free to take do-it-yourself tours. Story of Texas Museum is the "official" museum of the State of Texas. Renamed after late Lieutenant Governor Bob Bullock, the Bob Bullock Story of Texas Museum has interactive displays tracing the history of Texas from pre-historic times, an IMAX theatre and great gift shop.
