I don't think Americans are banned but you'd have to find somewhere to get a visa

Yes you can get a Visa to Syria in Beirut. You will find the address and telephone number on the Internet.

The word I am seeing is that it may be difficult to get one in Lebanon but try the information provided in the other response to your question. Syria was never a great land border to cross without a visa arranged in advance from an embassy in your home country or the nearest embassy to there. That is what I did both times I was there. Bear in mind Damascus is probably fine and I recently met someone who's daughter went to Aleppo briefly to visit her father but as there now may be an end game in sight for the conflict there are parts of the country highly susceptible to fluctuation and I would be careful about going too far afield until the dust settles.
