Three cities loom large in the life and death of John F. Kennedy: Washington, D.C., where he was president and senator; Dallas, where he died; and Boston, where he was born.
With the 50th anniversary of his Nov. 22, 1963 assassination at hand, all three offer places where you can learn more about him or honor his legacy. Here’s a list of museums, monuments, historic sites and events in those cities and a few others around the country. (Note several sites are affected by the federal government shutdown.)
