We visited here after we went to the museum. It is what it is - the actual spot where JFK was shot. Shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to check it out, spot the X’s on the road, and take a few pics. It’s still...More

You need to tie this in following a Museum tour, armed with all the necessary information and evidence provided. I don’t believe there was a second shooter, but s many do that this insignificant spot has gained International fame.

It was hard to grasp that I was standing on the "grassy knoll", an integral location constantly referred to in regards to the assassination of President John F Kennedy. This is where the "second shooter" was supposed to have been. The white X on the...More

This especially was a must do, we've heard so much over the years about the "Grassy Knoll". Being there, seeing the big white X's on the street where the shots hit the president ~ it was just a very surreal moment. Its a sad day...More
