On Location #16 - Pee-Wee Visits the Alamo

Remember when Pee Wee Herman visited the Alamo?

As you may recall, Pee-Wee was sent on a quest to find his beloved bicycle which he mistakenly believed was stashed away in the Alamo's nonexistent basement. As A kid I always wondered if that actually shot in San Anotonio.

The IMDb page lists San Antonio as a filming location and visual looks legit:

Compare that to the picture I took a few years ago and I think we have a match:

In the upper right of each picture you can see the sign for the Crockett Hotel which is near the Alamo. So I think it's safe to officially add Pee-Wee Herman to the list of the millions of yearly travelers who have visited the historic site.
