DALLAS (AP) - With the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination coming up, there's new interest in places around Dallas connected to the event.

Sites associated with the Nov. 22 anniversary include Dallas Love Field, the airport where President Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy landed, and where Lyndon Johnson was later sworn in as president. Another site is Parkland Memorial Hospital, where the president was brought. Dealey Plaza may be the biggest tourist attraction on the list: The Sixth Floor Museum there marks the place where Lee Harvey Oswald took aim at the president's passing motorcade.

Less well-known spots include a 1930s-era movie theater where Oswald was arrested, an Oak Cliff rooming house where he stayed, and the site at 10th Street and Patton Avenue where Oswald killed a policeman.
