We walked around the Alamo and here are a few pictures that I took. The Alamo didn’t cost anything for us to go to, but it was fun and you could easily spend a few hours walking around checking it out. I know my kids would enjoy seeing this.
We did save money by parking 2 blocks away from the Alamo, the closest parking lot charged $10 to park all day and the parking lot 2 blocks away was $4. We went with the cheaper one, it really does not take much longer to walk 2 blocks.
I bought my kids souvenirs while I was at the Alamo and the Riverwalk, I got them things that were inexpensive like a key chain because we have started a collection for each of the kids of key chains from places that we go. Starting this has saved us a lot of money because the kids always go looking for a new key chain instead of looking for the big items that cost a lot of money.
Money Saving Tips:
- Look for free attractions-you can find many museums and parks that are free.
- Look for coupons in local places for coupons to save money. I see brochures with coupons all the time in McDonald’s and Wendy’s
- Set a budget for souvenirs. Start a collection of something that is small and inexpensive so when you go to places you know what you are looking for.
- Park farther away, the closer the parking the more expensive but you can save yourself a lot of money by parking a block or 2 away. I saved $6 by parking 2 blocks away.
