Dealey Plaza is full of important history: It’s the birthplace of Dallas and the site of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. When you visit, you’ll notice two Xs in the road. These mark where Kennedy was hit by bullets fired by Lee Harvey Oswald from the Texas School Book Depository, which now houses the Sixth Floor Museum. Dealey Plaza is best experienced alongside a visit to this institution, which chronicles the life and death of JFK. The Dallas City Pass includes admission to the Sixth Floor Museum among other sites. It’s worth it, and if you do go for the Pass, you’ll definitely be in the area of Dealey Plaza anyways. And no visit to the Plaza is complete without a stop at the grassy knoll. Was there a second shooter? Decide for yourself!

Interesting stop. It’s kind of morbid but fascinating too. They put and X in the street where Kennedy was shot. But honestly the traffic in Dallas had me wondering if it was really worth it, people there drive like maniacs, and trying to navigate an RV on their highways was nerve wracking! (And I lived in LA!!!)
Take a city bus tour or a trolley tour after touring this area. It will make things mean more...
