We really enjoyed this. We were there with friends and out teenage daughters. So much history. There are people who will tell the history for a donation and they really know the details. I recommend going

It was eerily incredible to stand on the curb along the street where President Kennedy was assassinated, to think back to where I was that day and to ponder the many conspiracy theories.

As a historian, the draw to this location is Zapruder and the book depository. It's fun to watch people place themselves in the same location to experience first hand the vantage point for the historical film.

Along with Ford's Theater, Pearl Harbor, and the World Trade Center, few other American locations had an event that impacted American history the way the assassination of JFK at Dealey Plaza did on November 22, 1963. You truly are standing on the grounds of infamy. Visitors will gain an unforgettable first-hand perspective of what happened there that day.

While in town for a convention we took a trip to this historic spot. Although I was a very young child at the time of the assassination , I remember it. Being in this spot and hearing the story was chilling.

The plaza is a nice memorial to assassination of JFK. You are able to see the grassy knoll and the book depository as well as the location of where the shots hit. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

This was with in walking distance of the Hyatt regency. Great piece of history to witness. Quite a few people in the area. Only thing to watch out for is the people trying to sell you things or fill you in on the history, it is all available at the museums and on the plaques.

The plaza is very nice. Beware the men trying to "help" you out by pointing out facts. They are not with the city and will try & charge you $20 for helping you! They are VERY annoying.

Check the 3 markings on the road nearby to see the exact spots where the bullets hit JFK's motorcade.
