They have gracefully and peacefully dealt with the tragic loss of President John F. Kennedy and the intertwining of Dallas history in this museum. Very moving and definitely a destination when in town.
We have just completed a road trip round Texas which included a couple of days in Dallas, and although there were many highlights of this diverse state this was the one that stood out for me and to her surprise my wife.
We expected to...More

A well-structured tour, mist of the information will be filet yet it fills in some gaps and provides depth leading in and out of the fateful day. Be sure to tour the surrounding area (grassy knoll, etc.), which isn’t anything like I imagined from photos...More
When I visit historical museums, I tend to get bored from reading all of the information. At this museum, however, I was intrigued the entire time. The interactive audio tour complemented the information presented perfectly. I highly recommend going!

There are tons of options within your requirements. Most of the downtown hotels will be more expensive, but you can try the Lawrence, the Magnolia, the Adolphus (parking is $24 a night), and the Fairmont for web specials. Sometimes they have great deals--sometimes not a $ off. The Belmont is an interesting place to stay. I just checked their rates for your time period and you can get a nice room for $109 or $129, and there are no parking charges. This retro property is just over the...More
Sites/Attractions to visit - Dallas/Fort Worth (5 Replies)
We are going to be staying with a friend in Trophy Club for about 10 days in May. I'd like to get some opinions on what sites/attractions we shouldn't miss while there. We know we'll be going to the Sixth Floor Museum/Texas School Book Depository. We may also visit the Dallas Heritage Village, the Grapevine train, and wineries. I'd love to get some input from locals or those that visit the area often on both our ideas and any others. Thanks!

Have a look at the Stockyards National Historic District in Fort Worth. Lots of western flavor there, if that would interest you.
