Dealey Plaza is a beautiful and serene garden in the middle of the continually bustling traffic of Downtown Dallas. It is on the traditional grassy knoll, and is worth a visit.

This is the spot where president Kennedy was assassinated. I went with 2 young attorneys and another person in their late 50s, we all got chills and thought the visit was amazing but very eerie. We didn't go to the museum but history was everywhere. I could feel it. Not sure if young kids would appreciate it but definite must... More

Although we were born a few years after President Kennedy's assassination, my husband and I thought it was important to see Dealey Plaza and the Sixth Floor Museum (former Texas School Book Depository) while we were visiting Dallas. Seeing the crosses on the street indicating the points at which the shots struck JFK, and walking on the grassy knoll and... More

It's very crowded but the information is fabulous. As I looked out thre window and saw the Kennedy motorcade in pictures I thought back to where I was on that historic day.

We were in Dallas and looking for something to do, so we parked downtown and walked to Dealey Plaza. Even our friend who was with us who admittedly "doesn't have an interest in history" really enjoyed it. There are some really informative signs that show you exactly where everything happened, and it really is amazing to see the place that... More

If you like history, this place is pretty cool. This is the location where President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. It hasn't really changed much since that fateful day. Tours and museums are available in the area for a fee, but are not required to enjoy this somber and historic place.

Watch for Vendors peddling books and maps. You can get a good feel for the area just by walking around. Stand on the spot where the video was originally shot. This is a must see in Dallas.

A bit of a history nut anyway, I decided to take the wife and kids by Dealey Plaza on a recent trip to Dallas. We weren't expecting much but I have to tell you, if you've had any real interest in the Kennedy assassination this is worth your time if your in Dallas. I've lived in Texas for over 20... More
