Was very good! Took us about an hour to walk through. Traffic flowed pretty smoothly. Portable headsets were easy to hear. Good displays

After seeing countless specials about the JFK shooting, it was like stepping back into November 22, 1963... I was almost shocked at how much smaller Dealey Plaza is in person than how it appears on TV. But all else is exactly as I envisioned. Amazing to see in person for the first time. A must see!

If you are in Dallas then this is an absolute definite must see. It is unbelievable and surreal as you wander around, you cannot really believe what happened on these streets. There are "x" marks the spot markers on the road and various plaques scattered around containing information.

If you are in Dallas, you must go to Dealey Plaza. The area is smaller than I had imagined. Elm Street has an "x" in the road where the actual shots were fired. The street was repaved and one of the three shots has been covered.

Let your mind wander to 1963 and spend an hour or so in historic district. Really gets you thinking about what may have been

It is like standing in history. Do a little research before going and you will really feel the history of Nov. 19!

This is an incredible piece of history and everyone should visit. The only down side were the bums trying to force themseleves into your group to give you a tour for money.

Time stands still at Dealey Plaza. The perspective you get visiting here regarding the size of Dealey Plaza, the grassy knoll, the parking lot behind the grassy knoll, the distance from the sixth floor to the president's limo all make it eerily mesmerizing. So glad I got to see the actual site. So sad to this day.
