The San Jacinto Monument and Battlefield Tour
Outside of the Alamo, the site of the Battle of San Jacinto, in southeast Houston, is perhaps the most significant and hallowed ground in the State of Texas. The battlefield (now a park) commemorates The Battle of San Jacinto which took place on April 21, 1836. It was one of the most decisive and important battles in U.S. History. Texian and Tejano forces under the leadership of General Sam Houston surprised the Mexican Army of General (and President of Mexico) Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. In less than 18 minutes the Texian and Tejano armies were victorious and the Republic of Texas was born. Explore the site where it all took place and visit the world’s tallest stone monument and accompanying museum dedicated to the battle. Also at the Battleground site is the U.S.S. Texas, the only remaining battleship to serve in both World War I and World War II. She’s moored at the Houston Ship Channel adjacent to the Battlefield. This 5 hour tour includes an individual pick up and drop off at a place of your choosing in the greater Houston Area( we do have to limit the location to 25 miles from the Battleground), admissions to the Monument and Museum, a guided tour of the grounds and Monument, a ride to the top of the Monument with a view of the South Texas country side and a tour of the U.S.S. Texas. Allow an additional hour if your pick up and drop off place is outside of the Uptown or Downtown area. Unfortunately the Battleship Texas is not handicapped accessible. Our tour can accommodate up to 4 people. The cost is $200.00(for the tour NOT per person) and includes everything mentioned. Our fee is payable at the time of the tour.
