Dallas-Fort Worth Sights


Southfork Ranch Review

About 40 minutes north of Downtown Dallas lies one of the city's most enduring landmarks, Southfork Ranch. Built in 1970, the ranch became one of the city's best-known symbols after the TV show Dallas premiered in 1978. You can tour the mansion, have lunch at Miss Ellie's Deli, and try to remember who shot J. R. Unless you're a diehard fan of the show or are already in the Plano area, it's probably not worth the drive or expense.
