Urban legends and scary stories are a part of any place's culture, even here in Texas. We tend to focus on the positives like great barbecue, music, scenery, and people, but there's some legitimately scary history and lore that'd just scare the hell out of anyone.

WHAT CITY IN TEXAS WILL MAKE YOU PEE YOUR PANTS?

There's no shortage of supposedly haunted places in Texas, but if there's one place you might be inclined to believe is home to ghosts with unfinished business, it's the Alamo.

That's why Travel and Leisure listed San Antonio as one of the most haunted cities in America. In fact, it wasn't just the Alamo that put the city on their radar. The nearby Emily Morgan Hotel is also supposed to be full of restless spirits.

The Alamo is often romanticized as the event that galvanized and inspired the Texas revolutionaries, and yes, it was, but it was also a tragedy. The brave defenders were basically massacred after being under siege. Their pleas for help got no response. That's why it doesn't surprise me to know that visitors and employees there claim to have seen the ghosts of soldiers and heard their cries.

You may think the reports of ghosts at the Alamo are bullcrap, but I'm telling you that I've experienced hearing those cries and feeling an eerie presence when I visited the Alamo.

If you've never been, go there and allow yourself to stand still for a moment and really take in all the history and bloodshed on that hallowed ground. Chances are you'll experience something too.
