Vacation time is here! YAY! Summer vacations are so fun to look forward to, but sometimes we lack inspiration. What can we do? Where are the best places to visit?

1 The Alamo

I’ve been to the Alamo, and although I am a history buff and love all places like this, you don’t want to miss this one. It really doesn’t take that long to go through and there is a great little audio recording you listen to about the attack of the Mexican Army and the Texan Defenders who were defeated in 1836. Stroll the plaza and buy souvenirs. It’s fun, educational, and informative.

The landscaped grounds alone are worth the trip. There are absolutely beautiful shrubs and flowers at every turn. But the museum is also nice! Modern art was first introduced to Texas here.
