“Beautiful area, with most attractions within walking distance”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Parking was easy and it was great to be able to walk to the attractions within the area. We visited the JFK memorial, the assassination area (you may see tourists like me standing in the middle of the road where X marks the spot, for a photographic opportunity - be careful as the traffic only ceases for about 30 seconds). We walked through part of dallas just taking in the sites and those seriously tall glass buildings. Well worth a visit.

“Interesting, May Not Be Worth Separate Visit”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Was in Dallas for work and went by the Sixth Floor Museum, which is across from Dealey Plaza, so why not walk around there, too? I would say that it is more interesting in the context of the Kennedy assassination, than alone, but it is a nice little urban park and landmark to Dallas.

“Average place”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

I was expecting alot more from dealy plaza,for dallas being a big named city it was a little drab.I mean there could of been more colour to it and lights even after all you are in dallas!! But saying that the long horn cattle run made out of wrought iron was very good especially as they looked like they were drinking out of the steam.

“who shot JR would be more like it”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

I'd long wanted to see the 6th Floor museum and the plaza. The plaza itself is very pretty and easliy missed if you are careful. The wierd thing was the X's in the road for "The spots" (ie where the president was hit) - people are walking around this main carriageway and there's little safety. the 6th floor museum itself is quite expensive to get into and unless you're american and have been bought up on the JFK legend , won't mean an awful lot.
