In 1835, a group of 200 heroic and courageous volunteer soldiers Texans, lead by James Bowie, frontiersman Davy Crockett, and William Travis, sieged and occupied a former Franciscan mission now called “The Alamo” in the city of San Antonio, Texas for 13 days. The battle began on February 23,1836 and was lead by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, and his thousands of Mexican forces. The Mexicans invaders overpowered the group of 200 Texan volunteer soldiers at the Alamo, killing them all. This great symbolic battle became known as “The Battle of The Alamo.”

The River Walk located near the Downtown area of San Antonio Texas, is a resemblance of  Venice Italy. The River Walk is a combination of  traditional Native America, Old Mexico and the Wild West meets contemporary flare, and is quietly tucked away in a modern day city.

“The San Antonio River Walk (also known as Paseo del Río or simply as the River Walk) is a network of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River, one story beneath the streets of San Antonio, Texas, USA. Lined by bars, shops, restaurants, nature, and public art the River Walk is an important part of the city’s urban fabric and a tourist attraction in its own right”.

“Today, the River Walk is a successful special-case pedestrian street, one level down from the automobile street. The River Walk winds and loops under bridges as two parallel sidewalks lined with restaurants and shops, connecting the major tourist draws from the Shops at Rivercenter, to the Arneson River Theatre, to Marriage Island, to La Villita, to HemisFair Park, to the Tower Life Building, to the San Antonio Museum of Art, to the Pearl and the city’s five Spanish colonial missions, which have just been named a World Heritage Site, including the Alamo. During the annual springtime Fiesta San Antonio, the River Parade features flowery floats that float down the river”. [en.wikipedia.org]
