As we admired San Antonio's cityscape from the Tower of the Americas, we discovered the Alamodome. After doing an internet search, I gathered a bit of information on this huge structure.

The Alamodome comprises 57 acres, can seat more than 65,000 people (72,000 when expanded), has two Olympic-size permanent ice rinks, contains 38 executive suites, 6,000 club seats and Sports Club, hosts concerts, trade shows, professional and college football teams, hockey, speed skating events and the San Antonio Spurs basketball team. It's quite the multi-purpose construction!

The Alamodome was nearly debt-free when it opened in 1993 due to additional sales tax levied on the community in 1989. The first major ice event to be held here was the U.S. Olympics for the speed skating, ice hockey and figure skating competitions in July 1993.
