Going to Dallas? Why not visit the set of the TV series Dallas that began in the late 70's. Remember when the entire country was infatuated with the greatest cliffhanger of all time, "Who shot JR?".

Southfork Ranch

As the set of one of America's longest running television series, a visit to the unforgettable Southfork Ranch is like a trip back in time. Regularly scheduled guided tours of the ranch begin at the Visitors Center where guests board a tram for the ride through the grounds on the way to the famous Ewing Mansion. Along the way stories from the ranch's history are shared and once inside the mansion, visitors relive memories from the 13 years (356 episodes) of the original series plus it's spin-offs.

There's so much memorabilia on display in this actual filming location where the wealthy oil barons lived their lives with their extended family. It's hard to forget all of the underhanded backstabbing deals ... with the oldest brother JR Ewing always at the root of the trouble!



The most famous locations inside the mansion where the intrigue plays out include the dining room (home of many evening plot twists) and the outdoor pool-side breakfast table (where the stage was set for the days double-dealing to expand the oil empire).
