Tour Beautiful Southfork Ranch

For thirteen years, television sets were tuned into 356 episodes of Dallas, one of the longest-running TV series in history. Viewers made themselves at home at Southfork, the Ranch the Ewings called home and where the world was a weekly guest. Now you can visit this famous Texas Ranch in person and see firsthand the lifestyle portrayed in the series.

Today, Southfork continues to welcome visitors from around the world who come to see the legendary Dallas filming location and experience the lifestyle made famous by the Ewings. Whether you are an individual traveler or part of a group tour, Southfork Ranch is open daily from 10am-4pm for guided tours of the ranch. Tour the famed Ewing Mansion and relive exciting moments from the series in the “Dallas Legends” exhibit, featuring an exciting array of memorabilia from the series. See the gun that shot J.R., Lucy’s Wedding Dress, the Dallas Family Tree and Jock’s Lincoln Continental. Relax on a guided tour of the ranch grounds, tour the famous Ewing Mansion inside and out with a tour guide, and feel free to stroll the beautiful grounds and outbuildings at your leisure afterwards.
