Built by John Wayne and company for his epic 1959 film The Alamo -- and used for dozens of Westerns since -- this attraction meshes Western and Hollywood history into one fun attraction. Beyond the mock-up of the Alamo, there is an entire Wild West village, complete with a cantina (food, not beer), gift shops, and a roving herd of Texas longhorn. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, actors face off in mock gunfights and country musicians play in the cantina. Expect to spend an hour or two.
