It felt very surreal to be walking among the same place that President Kennedy was assassinated. I love that it all looks the same. If you're going to the museum, get your tickets first and then you'll have time to walk around Dealey Plaza.

This was an excellent place to visit if you are interested in this part of history. It is on a busy road so those with kids need to keep close eye on them but definitely a Dallas must do.

What a moving site. They have done a beautiful job of keeping the site how it looked back during the assassination of JFK.

I always feel strange when I find myself in Dealey Plaza. No matter your politics or personal beliefs, you cannot deny the energy in this place. Worth a look if you happen to be in the area for other reasons, I guess.

Sharp turn is an understatment. Did not realize how sharp that turn was and how much it slowed the procession. Surprised how far Parkland Hosp was.... Did not realize there were to sides to the grassy nolls. Amazing even 54 yr later how being here stirs up emotions and memories.

We had the opportunity to visit this historical sight on a recent business trip to Dallas. It was a short trip but my husband has always had a very avid interest in what happened here. Glad that we took the time to go. It is very interesting to see the sight and read the plaques, even the locals sitting around... More
