While returning to our home in El PasoTX-USA from Lake SpringMO-USA (where I had completed 99% of my executor duties for my deceased mother), there is no easy route but a whole lot of motoring--and viewing the landscape. Although time is a factor, one of the best things about travel is the spontaneity. From passing through this area when attending... More

This historic spot has been on my must see list for a long time and it was truly moving to stand there looking at the area and taking in the experience. There was a book signing that Sunday of our visit so it was very crowded.

So I was in Dallas for a major event this past week. As soon as I dropped my bags in hotel room off I went down Elm Street to the Plaza. This was the only time I would have to be a tourist. I walked a half mile in the heat against the sun but it wasn't horrible. I saw... More

We were on a self drive holiday, it was a cold wet sunday morning. We arrived too early for the museum to be open, but we knew that would be the case. Upon arrival a local showed us how to pay for the parking. It was in the car park of the book depositry near where the "conspiracy theories" claim... More

Surprised to see how much of this area has been imprinted on my memory from all those years ago. It really does look the same as in the news reports of the time and there really is an x on the road to mark the exact spot. The JFK memorial is surprisingly quiet in a very busy area

Dealey Plaza was just as I expected it to be. The trees are larger but it was as if time stood still. I didnt like the duct tape X in the road..... But the grounds are well maintained and there are plenty of storytellers to take you back to that day in 1963 and make you think about the truth.... More

It is as if a visitor has stepped into history. The X on the road sets the scene. Even the fence at the Grassy Knoll has been reproduced as it was that day

Went to the Sixth Floor Museum then walked around the area. Lots to see and do. Watch out for the street vendors-many trying to sell you things. It was a great day just walking around looking at many things in the area.

One of the most iconic scenes of the 20th Century is still almost as it was the Day President Kennedy was shot and killed. You can be at the exact spot that changed our history and see the same things as Kennedcy saw as he rounded the corner just before his own demise. It's eerie, it's fascinating and it's a... More

The museum is excellent. If there is a line and you know about President Kennedy you can go past that and come back to that info. Moving and emotional but it will be for anyone born between 1948 and 1954.
