One-Hour John F Kennedy Assassination Tour

86 reviews
We take you through the events of the day from a perspective not found on other tours. Why was JFK even in Dallas that day and why was that route for the motorcade chosen? We lay out the incredible coincidences and timing that culminated in a national tragedy that is as poignant today as it was in 1963.<br><br>We also tell the story of Jackie Kennedy's tremendous loss and her overwhelming grief. A story often overlooked. You've heard how she was stoic and poised in public, which she was, but we take you deeper into the private, human side of the story. You'll stand in disbelief as you hear these untold stories and wonder if you could have withstood the same public pressure if you were in her shoes. Not just the Assassination, but other, equally devastating life experiences.<br><br>We end the tour at the Sixth Floor Museum. There you can continue with a self guided tour equipped with headsets. We will help you buy tickets, give an overview of the Museum and help you with a speedy entrance.

This is a very nice park located at Turtle Creek Boulevard. It used to be called Oak Lawn Park. It has plenty of trees, shrubs, and ponds. It is also a nice place to sit down, read and relax. During the summer, There are many people having picnics in the park.

I went to Lee Park on a weekend and it is well groomed and has nice jogging trails. This is a very Nice park right in the middle of downtown Dallas. I saw a few patriotic statues of Ben Franklin and a replica building of "The Arlington House", which was Robert E. Lee’s home in Arlington, Virginia. The park was dedicated to Robert E Lee; However, the HUGE statue of Robert E. Lee was removed due to much controversy.

Dallas’ “Central Park” is operated by a Conservancy, the Turtle Creek Consurvancy, just as is Central Park in New York City, and both parks have benefited hugely. Being situated in Dallas along the western edge of “Uptown” at the intersection of Lemon Avenue and Turtle Turtle Creek Blv. and stretching up both sides of Turtle Creek the new Parks Board approved name is not surprisingly - Turtle Creek Park. It is a don’t miss! The park has benefitted for expensive landscape improvement including restoration of WPA features including the massive restoration of the 1938 community center that is a 5/8ths replica of Arlington House in Arlington Cemetary in Washington DC. This wonderful green stretch of park land is the Crown Jewel Of Dallas Parks.

Over the years, I have really enjoyed spending time at Lee park. The park grounds are well kept and relaxing. The Arlington Hall Conservatory on-site is gorgeous, but serves as an overpriced event space with little, to no parking. A little known fact about this building is that the conservatory is a 2/3 scale replica of “the Arlington house” which was Robert E. Lee’s home in Arlington, Virginia. In 1939, the park was dedicated to Robert E Lee and President Franklin Roosevelt spoke at the ceremony. The bronze Robert E Lee statue was ultimately removed from the grounds in the Fall of 2017, and the park subsequently returned to its original name “Oak Lawn Park”. There is controversy about whether the statue should have been removed or not, but the statue is currently in storage in south Dallas until the issue is revisited in 2020.

Lee Park is a retreat from the urban hustle and bustle of Uptown and Oak Lawn. It's the perfect place to walk your dog (leash law enforced), have a picnic and enjoy the gardens. There's a wonderful waterfall and spring-fed creek flowing under a stone bridge. Pavestone paths meander through the azaleas and old-growth trees. Across Turtle Creek are game courts and a new putting green. A bike/ADA ramp leads up to the Katy Trail. There are people & pet drinking fountains and benches throughout the park. At the top of the hill you'll find a wonderful secluded pavilion laced with wisteria and a great lawn to play frisbee or fly a kite. As a City of Dallas urban park, the 20 acre greenspace is surrounded by high rise condos and office buildings. But in the park you will encounter wildlife...red tail hawks, turtles, song birds, blue gill sunfish and ducks. Arlington Hall is a 2/3rds replica of Custis-Lee Mansion in Arlington, Virginia. It's available for meetings, weddings and parties. And there's a little museum inside to explain the 108-year history of the park and it's role in the community, so check it out!
