The Assassination and the Garden
It has been 3 months after my move here in Texas yet I’ve never explored it. I’ve been out and about in the neighboring states instead. This time, its Dallas time. I’ve been asking my newly found acquaintances on which attractions to visit and they mentioned more of museums, parks, malls, and gardens even bars and restaurants. Thus, I have decided to visit the JFK Museum and the Dallas Arboretum which I titled the article, the Assassination and the Garden.
Located in downtown Dallas, JFK Museum is the sixth floor museum in once was known as Texas School Book Depository building. The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is one of Texas’ most visited historical sites. It tells the story of life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. It chronicles the events of that dark moment in history and prompts guests to reminisce the legacy of JFK.

After visiting the museum and learning the American history, I went to a more relaxing location with green scenery. I came to see Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.
Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is a huge garden located in East Dallas and offers a wide array of popular flowers and plants. It is a best spot for nature lovers. The garden also holds public events for everyone such as Dallas Blooms which is a celebration of springtime annuals and perennials, and the fine art show, Artscape.

My little tour in downtown Dallas was productive. I have seen both the sad history and the colorful present. The assassination brought the lesson to everyone for this scenario not to happen again while the garden showed that there’s beauty and to keep nurturing Mother Nature.
