Nice outside area to relax. I don't remember there being too much more to it than that. It has a very nice atmosphere to sit and take a break from walking around. There are plenty of benches next to fountains. It is very close to a lot of attractions. Old Red Museum Holocaust Museum Sixth Floor Museum .....and more.

We visited here as part of a Segway tour, best way to do it as Dallas is hot and walking around can be difficult. Would highly recommend this as a way to get an overview so you can decide where you want to go back to. It is worth a visit for the JFK memorial, great to explain a little... More

An eerie place that should be seen by anyone who has an interest in history or politics. Imagine what it would have been like to be there in 1963 when John F. Kennedy was shot.

We went to the Sixth Floor Museum--formerly the Texas Book Depository. This is very near it. We sat on the grass knoll and just reflected on the events of 11/23/63. We paid the $2.50 for the cellphone part of the tour. They give you a number to call and a code to enter and the map to follow along. We... More

What an AWESOME experience! After seeing so many documentaries, movies, and pictures of Dealey Plaza, when we saw it in person, it was like we had been there before! This is a MUST see for all history and JFK people. We also took the Big D Tour Tolley....another awesome experience as the tour guide retraced the footsteps of Lee Harvey... More

If you are 53 or younger you will not remember the events of that weekend in Dallas in November, 1963. Our young, energetic and admired President was assassinated in Dealy Plaza in the heart of downtown Dallas. This very worthwhile monument to our fallen leader is very well worth seeing. It commemorates his life and times and features his beautiful... More

You can't do the Museum without doing this as well otherwise you wouldn't get a complete picture of what happened and you need to visit the grassy knoll and stand behind the fence.

It was strange to stand in the midst of an area that I knew so well from pictures and newsreel .Knowing what had happened there over 50 years ago it didn't look any different. I almost expected Kennedy's motorcade to appear around the bend into the Plaza at any time.
