Make time to visit Dealey Plaza. Take the audio tour or there is usually gentlemen that will tour you. Look up, down, around from any angle. There is no restriction of taking pictures, well except for the street. There are two X's on the streets....More

It was very moving to be in the exact place where this horrendous event happened. To see the grassy knoll, the depository sixth floor and the street where President Kennedy travelled on that fateful day was truly sombering.

While on a morning walk in downtown Dallas I happened upon this a walk through. Very peaceful. It’s right by downtown, so if you are staying downtown or West End take a look.

Stopped by on Labor Day. The place was very quiet and not busy. We were able to walk around and take in the sites in about ten minutes. Excellent place to visit and see everything.

A great tribute to the President, This is a lovely place to remember history & everything is in the same place, it is not a place to celebrate & can bring a tear to your eye.

When at the 6th floor museum a must stop at no extra charge. Had 2 stalls with some extra history. Marks on the road show where shots happened as the car drove by.

We visited the Plaza to see the grassy knoll. It was an unusual feeling to be standing on the same area from where a second shot MIGHT have been fired. Also a bit weird to see the cross es on the road with traffic roaring...More

You could certainly walk the plaza in the evening as it is an open public area, you just couldn't visit the excellent museum at the book depository.
