Despite the terrible events tastefully commemorated by plaques in the street, it is a very nice plaza. You can see where Zapruder was filming, look up at the sight lines to the book building, though they are blocked somewhat as the trees have had many...More

This is the site where President Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963. I remember watching the event of that day and that entire weekend on a small black & White TV and to stand and walk through the same place 50 plus years later is...More

Having lived through that fateful day that President Kennedy was shot, I was very interested in visiting Dealey Plaza. We spent almost 4 hours there reading the Placards and listening to the audio device which is included with the admission. I was physically moved to...More

Markers on the road show the 2 shots that hit JFK. The Grassy Knoll and across the street are as they were then. Plaques on the side walk, grassy knoll and across from the depository marked positions of photographers with shots of the actual event....More

It’s really too bad that such a beautiful area that was built to make people happy has been spiked by such a terrible event, but the fact is that the two will be intertwined forever. Unavoidable fact. Too bad, because it’s a nice space.

We walked around Dealey Plaza after touring the Sixth Floor museum. We were amazed by all of the history, both Kennedy and Dallas-area. Lots of history in one small area!

I’ve lived in Dallas for 24 years and this was my first trip to Dealy Plaza to really experience the history of the place. The markers on the road, the signage, standing there on the grassy knoll - all of it kind of transports you...More

We explored this after visiting the book depository museum. It was ok, you can see the grassy knoll and other areas. Worth some time after your museum visit but definitely not an attraction on its own.

Wow! When you visit you get to see just what happened where and when - especially if you do the 6th floor museum first The plaza is just as it was on the 60s little has changed apart from the height of the trees

You must visit this spot where history was sadly made. Very basic area but well done. Look for the X’s painted in the road where the shots hit the motorcade.
