Tower of the America's. It is 750 ft. tall, offers a panoramic view of San Antonio.  I would liked to have gone up there, but it open until 11:00 AM and I would have missed my flight back.

Those walls must have been well built to stand the test of time.

Front of the "Alamo Mission".

The old and the new in the same neighborhood.

  It's not open yet, I'll have time to eat a quick breakfast and walk the River Front and then come back.

Outside the Alamo.
