Site of JFK Assassination
Dallas pays homage to its darkest day in November 1963 when President John F. Kennedy was killed. Visit the infamous Texas Schoolbook Depository, where the official JFK monument is located in the Sixth Floor Museum, a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The sixth floor corner window area is currently in a glass enclosed display designed to recreate the so-called "sniper's perch".
