Southfork Mansion is surrounded by a lot of development expanding from the Dallas corridor for the most part. You still get that Texas open range sense, but not too far suburbia is taking over at a rapid pace. I did not enter the property, but I did take a few pictures from the entrance. I'm sure you could spend hours... More

As a teen, I was more interested in watching Miami Vice than Dallas - so I discovered JR and the Ewing's after the show had ended its network run. When I started watching, I became an instant fan. So, SouthFork Ranch was a tv bucket-list tour. What I got in return for my $15 ticket was three tours in one.... More

A pleasant afternoon if you have the time, but don't expect it to look anything like what you remember from tv. Everything is much smaller than you would expect. If you were a big fan of "Dallas" on tv, you may enjoy seeing the location and the memorabilia on display.

I booked a guided tour from my hotel, we were dropped at the ranch, where the local guide took us on a tractor-like train and drove us cross the ranch to the house, where another guide showed us the whole property and shared lots of history facts, filming stories and other information. The house and whole property is very well... More

Never really into Dallas as a TV series and therefore not really looking forward to going to visit Southfork Ranch. The weather was awful, very, heavy rain. So the this did not bode well for a pleasant tour. However things did get much better, we had a superb guide who explained how the filming had taken place together with the... More

The grounds are very nice at night with lights around trees and house. The food that was served was very good. Entertainment was provided as this was a private party. The rodeo that they put on for us was very nice.

As a Dallas fan (the original and the 2012) I couldn't wait to visit the Ranch. It didn't disappoint- I loved it. There is a great relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the staff are very helpful. Even children aged 8&9 (who've never seen the show obviously) had a good time. If you enjoyed the show then you'll love this experience.... More
