Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
Duration:
Flexible
From:
USD 16.00
<p>On his visit to Dallas on 22 November, 1963, President John F. Kennedy rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza on his way to the Dallas Trade Mart. In the presidential car with Kennedy were his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally, and his wife Nellie. Hundreds of well-wishers were scattered throughout the Plaza. Nellie Connally's last words to Kennedy, 'Mr. President, you can't say Dallas doesn't love you!' reflected the sentiment of the crowd.</p>

Marionette Theater Tickets

Marionette Theater Tickets
Duration:
60 minutes
From:
USD 19.48
<p>'Walking into Geppetto's is like stepping into the past.' The lobby is beautifully adorned with handcrafted wooden marionettes and the walls display the primitive woodworking tools from a 16-century toy makers shop.  Geppetto's has a puppetry store where children are encouraged to try their hand at developing their puppetry skills.  There is a large concession stand with cold drinks,  ice cream, confection bar and fresh popped corn.  The theater itself is gorgeous and looks like something you would find in Europe, or at Disney. Classic children's stories such as The Wizard of Oz or Cinderella are presented weekends throughout the year.  Tip: Arrive early to see how the marionettes are made and operated by the professional puppeteers and stay after the show for a behind-the-scenes backstage tour with photo session with the puppets. </p>

 DAL Dallas Love Field Airport Info & Guide


Dallas Love Field Airport

Where is Dallas Love Field Airport?  


Dallas Love Field Airport (IATA: DAL, ICAO: KDAL, FAA LID: DAL) is located 10 kilometres (6 miles) northwest of downtown Dallas, Texas, United States. The airport is named to honour First Lieutenant Moss L. Love, a pilot of the 11th Cavalry of the US Army.


In 2012, Dallas Love Field Airport served 8,173,927 passengers. The city's other airport, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), is by far the busier of the two.


An ambitious modernization program is underway at Love Field, and will include a new ticketing wing, a renovated lobby, a centralized, 20 gate concourse, and a larger baggage claim area. 


Dallas Love Field Airport is a hub for Southwest Airlines (the company's corporate headquarters are located on-site). Other airlines that fly from Dallas Love Field Airport include Delta Connection, and SeaPort Airlines and United Express.


Cities with flights to Dallas Love Field Airport include Albuquerque, Amarillo, Atlanta, Austin, Birmingham (AL), Branson, El Dorado, El Paso, Harlingen, Houston, Kansas City, Little Rock, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, San Antonio, Tulsa and Wichita.

Where did the Texas Ranger go? Since 1961, the iconic statue Texas Ranger of 1960 – also known as “One Riot, One Ranger” – has stood guard in the Dallas Love Field Terminal Lobby, surveying the comings and goings of passengers. This notorious ranger temporarily left his post, while progress of the Love Field Modernization Program continues, and reported to his new station at the nearby Frontiers of Flight Museum. The nearly 12-foot tall, bronze Texan is expected to return in 2013.

 

Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th President of the United States, was sworn in at Dallas Love Field Airport, following the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The event took place while LBJ was onboard Air Force One, on the tarmac. Now, 50 years later, JFK historian Farris Rookstool has pinpointed the exact spot (it's by where Southwest jets taxi to/from gates). In 2014, you can try to spot a new plaque from your plane (its marked by an orange square for now), but the closest the public will be able to get is a terminal window. No plans yet for a duplicate marker inside, yet.
