There are many interesting things to do and see in Main Plaza. We didn't plan we just went and spent the day. Besides the Alamo, there are museums and attractions and many lovely buildings to see. There are also many places to shop.

I ran across this completely by accident. This was a cool light show. They really did a good job and it's in my opinion worth checking out.
