Southfork Ranch

Southfork Ranch - TV's Dallas Tours

The ranch was the setting for both runs of Dallas (1970s and more recent rebirth). The exterior of the house and grounds were used; no interior shots were taken inside the home. There is a tour of the property (by tractor/tram) and a guided tour of the interior of the home ($$). After the guided part of the tour, you are free to walk the grounds and see barns, a convention center, a small cafe and Elena's cabin from the rebirth of the show.

There is a large gift shop full of all kinds of wares stamped with Southfork. A museum is the first part of the guided tour, which houses a few props and tv's playing scenes from the original show and a reunion. There is a "family tree" that takes up an entire wall and the famous "Who Shot J.R." prop gun.
