It was a walk through American history. It doesn't take very long to see everything here. It is well kept.

Situated at the west end of main street this sad but moving site of Kennedy's assassination has a serenity about it. View the path of the motorcade, the book depository, grassy knoll, and the "X" (two) on the roadway. There is a small museum store on the north-east corner. **Beware** guys selling 'Official' Kennedy booklets will approach you and ask... More

A enjoy sitting on the grass in the shade and watching the cars go by and the visiting conspiracy theorist. Its a good people watching area and also kinda of amusing watching people running back and forward to take pictures on the x"s in the middle of the highway, trying to not get hit my by cars. It is a... More

We were getting tired and had a long way to drive. Yet everyone, even those with short legs enjoyed this spot. Everything is very close together. People are walking around willing to tell the story--from their point of view of the Kennedy Assassination. The grassy knoll is still there (with a rebuilt fence), the train watch tower, the buildings and... More

Enjoyed looking around and taking pictures after we finished our tour of the Sixth Floor Museum. Very few markers so I am glad we went through the museum first.

After touring the Sixth Fllor Museum, go down here to see the grassy knoll and place where President Kennedy was shot. There are actually two marks on the street that show where the car was when the bullets hit. Helps bring the film footage to life.

The Plaza was originally built for a prominent Dallas local but became known as the site for the JFK assignation. The plaza itself is beautiful even with the few homeless and people peddling JFK newspapers. The fountains need a little work but overall worth the visit. Not to mention the JFK intrigue. We did walk around and come up with... More

I was meandering around prior to the 6th floor museum opening. Giving myself a self-guided tour. Some local guy came up and started showing me around. It was great. Don't know who this guy was, but he seemed very well versed in the history of the site. Felt like I got a personalized tour and had many of my questions... More

I was in town with students for a National Competition. We took the train from downtown and walked to this historic spot. It was a great opportunity to share the history and emotion of this time in history with young people. Very much worth the effort to visit.
