Many people visit Dallas because of the city's tragic legacy as the assassination site of President John F. Kennedy. Dallas has learned to accept its role in history, offering a museum that pays tribute to JFK's life and legacy and restoring the memorial in his honor. But the city is also learning how to entertain and charm its visitors. Beyond the Schoolbook Depository and the Grassy Knoll, visitors will find an evolving Arts District, flashy Victory Park, a couple of entertainment districts, an improving Downtown, neighborhoods filled with notable architecture and beautiful landscaping, and myriad shopping and dining opportunities.
