I was in Dallas for a conference on the JFK assassination. I went to Dealey Plaza as part of the group, but also spent a lot of time there by myself. I've seen many pictures of it and seen it in movies and documentaries, but...More

What an experience to stand in the very spot where history changed the course of the nation. One should avail themselves of this.

Skip the 6th floor museum if you're old enough to remember the assassination. Walking around Dealey Plaza is much better; you can get a sense of how close Oswald was to the motorcade. Dealey Plaza itself was built with WPA funds in the 1930s.
