- The Eiffel Tower. (of course.) The Eiffel Tower was constructed for the World's Fair Exposition of 1889 by Alexander Gustave Eiffel. It was originally built as a temporary structure, to be torn down after the fair.-luckily it was not. There are two restaurants and a buffet inside the tower. Visitors are allowed to go to the third floor of the tower. There are over 1,600 steps also, but most people take the elevator. :-)

4. The Alamo. I've been here too many times to count, yet every time I learn something new and inspiring. The Alamo, once called the Mission San Antonio de Valero, used to be a Catholic mission, then a fortress and was the site of the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. It is now a museum in Downtown San Antonio, Texas. I love it because it stands silently, helping us all remember the brave Texans who fought, though outnumbered, against a cruel dictator and injustice, they helped to make Texas the 28th state.(and in my opinion, the best state, but that's because I live here!) "Texas, our Texas, all hail the mighty state!"

I've been here! I did a whole post dedicated to this place, also on the nearby Neiman Marcus store and the Sixth floor museum, where JFK was assassinated. To view my posts on all those click here and scroll down a little: http://lac998.blogspot.com/2011_07_01_archive.html
(P.S. I've been to all except the top 2 places.)
Thanks for reading!
