At 12:30 on November 22, 1963, the 35th President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was shot dead while driving in a convertible through Deely Square (Dealey Plaza) in Dallas, Texas, accompanied by his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy and Governor John Connally. The killer shot on the sixth floor of the textbook building, where two bullet points were marked at the scene of the assassination in Dilly Square.
The Presidential Kennedy Memorial is very wide. It is a brown-red building, which is very fun to visit. The entire internal space is called President Kennedy's memories and memorials.
The John F. Kennedy Tribute is a four- to five-minute walk from The Sixth Floor Museum. It was built to commemorate the assassination of former US President John F. Kennedy in Dallas. This is an outdoor spot, and the whole monument has a solemn feeling.
So crazy being able to see right where the shooting happened. Lots of signs and monuments to understand the full history.
Upon first glance this Memorial Plaza doesn’t look like much. After reading where the thought was behind building it, it makes more sense. Located about a block and a half from the Dealey Plaza, be sure to walk over when visiting.
The John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza is in the heart of Dallas it's an open air area featuring a JFK Memorial and other great places to sit and relax and take in Dallas.
Dedicated to President John F. Kennedy who was shot and killed just a block away from here in Dallas on November 22, 1963, the monument is a large white cenotaph that represents the tragedy in a solemn yet appropriate manner. Information is posted in and around the monument to educate visitors about the events. The Sixth Floor Museum and Dealey Plaza are also nearby, so this is an important part of the JFK tour if you're a history buff.
