This Dallas Food and JFK History tour, narrated by a true Dallas historian, is for hungry history and architecture lovers! This tour begins in the Historic West End where your expert guide will escort you on Dallas' only walking tour of the JFK experience. The year 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination and we've found these historic sites best explored by foot. Take a moment to reflect in the John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza. Stand at the grassy knoll assassination site where you will see the X's on Elm Street that mark where the two shots were fired. Look up at the infamous sniper's perch window.
After you work up an appetite on your history tour it's time to begin your food tour! On this part of the tour we will get an insider's view into Dallas' trendy West Village, a walk-able urban living, dining and shopping district in the heart of affluent Uptown, Dallas. We will stop for sit-down restaurant tastings from casual local eateries, and a dessert tasting. For most guests, this tour is enough for lunch or dinner!
