This is the place where the original Ewings lived and fought in opulent splendor...and now they're a newer, hipper crowd with the same name and living in the same grand mansion. The concept of a mansion originated in Ancient Rome, where powerful families and people used the properties for social entertaining as part of their societal moulding role. The Ewings... More

Absolutely loved this place......great memories of Dallas as I practically grew up watching it. If you are a JR fan, this is the place to be. Although the real Bobby's office in Downtown is not that great, skip that and hang out at the ranch. Love the fact they never changed the awnings.....lots of Dallas memorabilia to chose from.

It was worth it to pay a visit to the Southpark Ranch; I grew up watching the Dallas serie (Original) since a 7 yrs old boy. An honor in seeing the Ranch and the surroundings. Also great guide from guide Sally, she did a great job, keep up the good job for many more years lady!!! Compliments!!! Big thanks

Southfork has been turned into the typical tourist trap. It is twenty five miles north of Dallas. Buy your tickets in the gift shop and hang out there till your tour time. Jump on board the tram pulled by a tractor for a short ride around the grounds stopping at the "DALLAS" mansion. It looks much larger and opulent on... More

If you are a Dallas TV show fan you will really love this tour. The Museum is priceless!!! You get to take your time viewing old shows and memorabilia that only true fans would love. It was exciting to visit and experience the feel of what it was like to be on the set of the show. The history of... More

As a fan of the original show and the current, I was so pleased I went there, the tour guide I had in the house was amazing, and I just loved every minute of it. As thee are no tours from Dallas to the ranch I stayed at the Southfork hotel and they offer free shuttle and admission. Just loved... More

We grew up watching Dallas as teenagers and on a whim decided to stop at Southfork as we left Dallas on our trip last month. Not expecting much except kitsch, we were pleasantly surprised and felt this really ended up being a highlight of the trip! The included tour was fun and just long enough. The man giving the narrative... More
