Not a bad place to visit if you like history. Very nice at night for pictures when lights are on. If you stand on a certain spot you can get a good shot without buildings in background.

You can learn more about Texas History by visiting the Alamo. It is a small complex. Expect to spend one hour here with the queuing to enter and sight seeing.
