Visiting Dealey Plaza pairs well with seeing the 6th Floor Museum. We went through the museum first, them went down to Plaza. That helped put things in perspective on the plaza. Also provides a great view of the old courthouse.

The whole area is great to walk around and see the history. It is rare that you can just walk at your own pace. Would recommend!

Dealy Plaza is a historic site due to the Kennedy assassination in 1963. The Zapruder film was taken here. There is also the grassy knoll and the stockade fence. Beware of hucksters stopping you to talk and wanting to charge you $7.00 for information that...More

Visiting the area is similar to walking through history. Area is relatively the same even after many years have passed. I watched the assassination on YouTube and then followed the path on my own. Surreal

We found this location to have the most concentration of tourists, found in the historical area in downtown Dallas. There is an open tomb for JFK, and the book depository which you can enter via the rear to access the 6th floor.

To see the marks on the road where the shots were fired places you in the thick of what happened on that fatal day.

Underwhelming in person but a site every American should see. Surprised they haven't detoured the road to pave over the site with a memorial. Cars just drive over this historical site every minute of every day. The World Trade Center in NY and school buildings...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.
