Earlier this month, I read that the memorial statue of John F. Kennedy would once again be open to the public. Apparently, it was off limits right after 9/11/01, but now it may be seen by all. Since I wasn't aware of the statue in the first place, I made it a priority to see it quickly...before the tourists hit town. I was rather lucky, even though there were several school groups, I remained patient and they soon moved on.
If you face the State House, the statue is to your left.
