After you've visited the JFK Museum in the Texas Book Depository you'll want to cross Dealey Plaza to the 'grassy knoll', particularly if you're a conspiracy theorist about JFK's assassination. Obviously there's a good view across to the Oswald 'sniper's nest', but the biggest surprise for me was how much further the site is from where the motorcade was as compared to the Book Depository. Disappointingly there's a lot of detritus from 'rough sleepers' littering the site.

How many times have you seen the shooting video or picture of when John Kennedy was assassinated? Experience the the motorcade path, the view form the book depository, and the actual spot where Kennedy was shot (2 - X marks the spot.

Onsite parking for $8, quick visit. Alot of unauthorized people trying to sell you literature which I thought was annoying and disrespectful. Some people even took pictures of themselves standing on one of the X's which was in the middle of a very busy road. Again disrespectful and dangerous

This is the location where the Abraham Zapruder film was taken after John F. Kennedy was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald on Nov. 22, 1963.
