Really interesting Landmark, with some memorials to JFK, and the photographer who captured his last moments of life.

This monument is a bit understated, especially by comparison to what is in Fort Worth (Kennedy's earlier stop in Texas). But it is worth seeing if you are in the area.

It is amazing and weird at the same time being on the spot that marked a before and after in the history of the US. You cannot describe how does it feel like. You have to experience it yourself.

The history makes this a must go location...still bustling as it's right in the middle of things, but there's an air to the place. Buskers selling conspiracy theory books...talk to them, it was pretty interesting regardless of where you land on it. Take some time...More

You could certainly walk the plaza in the evening as it is an open public area, you just couldn't visit the excellent museum at the book depository.
