The Alamo

Siege at the Alamo! Segways were intended to be the 21st century's first game-changing mode of transportation, and they still maintain niche popularity for short tour rentals in spots like Alamo plaza. On any given day, scores of helmeted tourists-on-wheels form up outside the landmark's walls, like Santa Anna's elite cavalry.
