Can't get the theme song out of my head now

My family was visiting from New Jersey and we had a blast walking around the ranch and touring the fictional "home" of the Ewings. Once you purchase your tickets at the visitor... read more

Great family tour of JR's home. The olympic size pool is your standard backyard pool. TV can do wonders to make it look larger. Pretty farm, nice gift shop and coffee shop. Expect to spend about 3 hours visiting and touring the Ranch.

I did mention that there was nowhere on the website that stated 24hrs notice was required I was rudely told it should... More

Everything about this place is bad. We found out the TV series were only filmed here from the outside of the house. The rest were filmed in Culver City California. Even the outside is very unimpressive. The exterior needs paint, decks need resurfacing. Takes 1/2 an hour to go there and another 1/2 to come back. $ 15 entrance fee.... More

My family was visiting from New Jersey and we had a blast walking around the ranch and touring the fictional "home" of the Ewings. Once you purchase your tickets at the visitor center, you head out back for a tractor tram ride to the mansion. The mansion still looks like it did in the opening scenes of the original show....

Brought back many memories of the TV show. Really enjoyed all the details about the filming of the show. It is great that you can walk anywhere you want to on the ranch and take as many pictures as you wish.

While working near by in Plano Texas, I needed something to do for entertainment, and this place came first to mind. It was great learning the history behind the house and how it was chosen and the deals that were made to keep filming there. The house is pretty small compared to the outside. If your in the Dallas area... More

The drive from Dallas is approximately 35 miles/40 minutes. As the house came into view, the theme song kept playing in my head. Take plenty of pictures and wear comfortable walking shoes. The tour guide had quite a depth of knowledge about the show, ranch, original owners, and the like. I found the grounds far more impressive than the house,... More

I have been to Southfork Ranch several times with visitors. Each time I go, I love it more. I was a fan of the television show which helps but even if you did not watch the series, the ranch is a lovely and peaceful place to visit. All of the staff are knowledgeable about the history and very friendly. There... More

I have always been a fan of the series Dallas as a teen so I was super-excited to see where they were shot. It was a cold day and my friend and I were the only ones there on a tour; so we got a lovely, memorable and personalised tour. My favourite character for years was Bobby so it was... More
