While Hillary and Bernie were battling it out in Cali yesterday and Trump is working on ‘Making America Great Again,’ does anyone else need a break from politics and the candidates this summer? Speaking of politics, did you know June is National Potty Training Awareness Month? But on a more serious note, we stepped into a much different political scene last weekend. It was goodbye 2016 – hello 1960’s.
We enjoyed a staycation in Dallas and checked out the newly opened JFK ‘Special Exhibit‘ at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealy Plaza. Perhaps you know all about November 22, 1963 (conspiracy theories and all) when JFK was assassinated. To stand on the sixth floor overlooking Dealy Plaza seeing photos and hearing voices of bystanders who saw the assassination that day was surreal and upsetting there are so many unanswered questions to this day. It is the #2 tourist destination in Texas (after the Alamo in San Antonio) and I highly recommend adding this stop to your travel list…
The Scene – Dallas on our walk toward the JFK Memorial and the Sixth Floor Museum.
Just a few minutes from the JFK Memorial, you’ll find tons of tourist-stye restaurants and souvenir shops.
There is a constant stream of tourists visiting this scene where Kennedy was assassinated which has been preserved to look exactly like it did in the 60’s. You can stand on the Grassy Knoll and there is actually an ‘X’ painted in the street that marks the spot where he was killed.
‘A Time for Greatness’ – There is a ‘Special Exhibit’ that just opened inside the Sixth Floor Museum where you can view more photos of JFK and Jacqueline as you literally step inside the 1960 Kennedy Campaign. (It’s open through November)
You can even sit down and snap a pic as if you were working in the Kennedy/Johnson campaign headquarters. It felt so authentic right down to the rotary dial phone and ash tray.
Special Thanks! – This post was made possible thanks to our generous sponsor, Wilhelmina, who donated a 90 minute mid-day nap so we could enjoy the museum.
