The legendary Southfork Ranch, known to most of America as the Ewing family mansion on the television show Dallas, is now a tourist destination and premier venue for meetings and special events in the area. For folks who are just visiting us at Southfork Ranch for the day, you can get a tour of the famous Ewing Mansion, escape to the outdoors with a trail ride, or combine the two into a full day with our special “Day at the Ranch” package.
The beloved television series Dallas ran for 13 seasons, making it one of the longest-running television series in history. In fact, “Dallas” is still running in syndication across the globe. For decades, fans have come to Southfork Ranch to see the place they watched the Ewing family drama unfold for over a decade.
Here at Southfork Ranch, we are open daily and provide guided tours of the Ranch all year long. On the guided tour, you will see the expansive and impressive Ewing mansion. Our Dallas Legends exhibit includes props and memorabilia from the some of the show’s most iconic episodes. See the “Dallas” family tree, Lucy’s wedding dress, Jock’s Lincoln continental, and, of course, the gun that shot J.R.
Leave the glamor of the Ewing Mansion behind and head out beneath the wide-open Texas skies with a guided trail ride at Southfork Ranch. Perfect for first-time riders and families, our trail rides allow you to see America’s most famous ranch from the best seat around, a saddle. We offer these leisurely horseback rides along the beautiful Southfork trails daily, leaving every 90 minutes from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Please note that all riders must be at least eight-years-old, wear closed toe shoes, and weigh less than 240 pounds to take part in the ride.
See the best of both sides of Southfork with a Day at the Ranch! Begin with a relaxing morning trail ride then head over to the Ewing Mansion for a guided tour. Enjoy a great lunch at Miss Ellie’s Deli and then check out the Ranch Round-up, our on-site gift shop. This special full-day package includes a credit at the gift shop and a snack for the end of the day. Although mansion tours are available on a walk-up basis, trail rides and the Day at the Ranch package must be reserved in advance.
