This is where it happen . November 22, 1963. Fact is John F Kennedy was shot on this very spot. Who shot him .? It's still being Discussed to this very day. You can always find some stranger that will come up to you and ask " who do you think did it".? Every year there is a gathering on... More

Our trip to Delay Plaza was very emotional and brought back so many memories of the day JFK was killed. Having read many books and watched many movies on the subject it was really moving to see all the locations in person, the grassy knoll, the picket fence, the railway yard, the view down Houston Street, the view toward the...

The Sixth Floor Museum and Dealey Plaza are both a great experience for any age. You are given an audio player with headphones that has a guided tour already loaded onto it. It is really supplementary - I recommend every visitor listen to it rather than guide themselves. There is even a "family" option for those with smaller kids. The... More

I've seen the footage of JFKs assassination many times, and it was fascinating to see the spot in person. This is a free attraction (although there is a $20 trolley you can ride, there are people seeing things, and there is a museum across the street). It's definitely worth a visit,

There can't be many people who haven't seen this place on the TV or in a movie, to see it itself for me, was almost surreal. I am a bit of a Kennedy obsessive, not really a conspiracy theorist, but fascinated by the whole Camelot scene. I was just old enough to realise that JFK might offer something new and... More

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.
