FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Best Time to Visit The Alamo is Feb. 23 - March 6, During Battle of The Alamo Commemoration
From February 23 through March 6, Battle of the Alamo Commemoration will honor the anniversary of the 1836 siege and Battle of the Alamo with 12 days of special tours and events at the historic Alamo site.
Generously sponsored by Grunt Style, these events bring the Alamo's unique story to life, inspire visitors, and honor all those who lived, fought, and died for Texas' independence. Visitors will learn about the Texas Revolution and most of all, why we remember the Alamo 186 years later.
This is by far the best time to visit and experience the Shrine of Texas Liberty. The public and press are encouraged to attend the events listed below, and to check the site daily to see even more special programming.
