Very eerie feeling when we went there. I always thought the plaza was huge when I saw the news on tv. Walked around and talked to people that were there and remember the events that occurred.i was saddened and surprise that after all of these years that people are still coming to see it. Didn't go to the museum in... More

Very interesting area historically, very nice... More

The Dealey Plaza area is so full of history that it really is a must see for everyone visiting the Dallas area. There is ample parking and the area is kept nice and clean. To see the exact spot in the street where JFK was shot and to look up at the old schoolbook depository building was chilling. The 6th... More

This is a nice if somewhat overdue memorial. It is understated which is fine since the excellent Sixth Floor Museum is right there.

The area is very clean. It is not much in the area for food but does not lack in history. Parking is easy and affordable.

The ares is quite pretty with a park and memorial that is free and open to the public. Parking is hard to come by but it is worth stopping in if you can.

In going to Dallas, I had thought I wouldn't want to visit Dealey Plaza as I remember the JFK assassination almost as if it had happened yesterday. But we found ourselves right there upon exiting the Old Red Museum so spent some time exploring the key points of interest in that area. Fortunately, this is not a tourist trap. It... More
