On November 22, 1963, US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. Today many attractions and monuments in the city commemorate not only that tragic day, but the man himself. Here are a few sights you should definitely not miss.
Medieval Times Dallas

Part of the nationally acclaimed dinner-theater company, the Dallas-based production of Medieval Times hosts guests inside a historical-looking castle. Dinner portions are large and include items such as roast chicken, tomato soup, garlic bread, baked potato, and dessert. Then prepare for some fun and audience participation as you cheer for your “home team,” which includes six knights on their two-hour epic battle quest and a supporting cast of live horses, serfs, and royalty.

How to Get There
Medieval Times Dallas is located at 2021 North Stemmons Freeway, in the Design District of Dallas, Texas. From DFW Airport, it’s an 18-minute drive southeast. Follow I-35E south to North Stemmons Freeway and free on-site parking. The nearest DART bus stop is I-35 at Oak Lawn.
When to Get There
Reserve your Medieval Times Dallas ticket in advance to ensure the time and date of your choice. The castle opens 75 minutes prior to the scheduled showtime, and it’s recommended that you arrive early so you have plenty of time to get a good seat and check out the additional features of the castle, as well as purchase souvenirs if you wish.
One of the additional “attractions” at Medieval Times Dallas that guests frequently talk about is the creepy medieval torture museum, available to tour for an additional fee. Here you can see some of the devices used for punishment during the 11th century. This may not be suitable for children.
