Description
6-Hour Combination Tour in Dallas and Southfork Ranch Photos (1)

It's hard to believe Dallas started out as a small trading post, in 1841, and has now grown to over a million in population. This is due, in part, to the oil and cotton industry. Dallas is known for many different reasons now, so hop on the bus, Gus, and start the journey.

See the famous "Pioneer Plaza, where there is a huge bronze sculptures display of a cattle run. It is meant to depict the history of cowboys and Dallas. Take a moment to reflect on JFK, by his memorial, and by the area where he met his unfortunate demise. Wander around Founders Plaza, get lost in the history, visiting a replica of John Neely Bryan Cabin, who was the founder of Dallas. Next stand in awe of the beautiful old red brick courthouse, which was built to withstand fires, that its' predecessors could not. Explore "The Wilson Block" which is complete with Victorian houses, then venture into the "art district" which, by the way, is the largest in the world, a sight to behold.

Head out of the city to see the "infamous" Southfork Ranch that was used for the wildly popular "Dallas" show from 1978-1991. See all the props and clothing worn from the show. The most famous prop, is the gun from "Who shot J.R.? Of course you'll also see Jock's 1978 Lincoln. Do a little shopping, and maybe pick out a ten gallon cowboy hat for yourself.

The tour takes about six hours, and transportation is included to and from all destinations, a professional guide and art historian. The tour only accommodates 11 people, so book early to ensure your spot.

Dallas Tour
After pickup from local Dallas hotel at 10am, you are off for an adventure in the history of Dallas. Perhaps the genesis of Dallas as a small trading post in 1841 seems incredulous as one now looks on one of the most beautiful cities in the US. Dallas is indeed a city of international renown and boasts some marvelous landmarks. Guests to Dallas will want to give themselves plenty of time to take in the sights and sounds. Sights seen include:  Founders Plaza, Old Red Court  House, John Neely Bryan Cabin, JFK Memorial, Pioneer Plaza (largest bronze collection in the world), Dallas City Hall (designed by I.M. Pei), Thanks-Giving Square, First Baptist Dallas Fountain Plaza, Deep Ellum, The Wilson Block (historic neighborhood, Queen Anne/Victorian Style Houses), The Art District (the largest in the world!), Klyde Warren Park, The City of Highland Park (5th richest suburb in USA, home to many celebrities), Uptown the McKinney Avenue restaurant district, West End, Dealey Plaza (JFK assassination Point), and much more.

Southfork Ranch Tour
Texans have always believed that they live "larger-than-life," and where else is that so clearly lived out than at the infamous Southfork Ranch? Make-believe, some say? Perhaps, yet for 13 years (356 episodes), this made-for-TV drama captured the imaginations of millions of people around the world. As one of the longest running series in American television history, "Dallas" invited folks into its world each week . . . and now guests from across the  US and internationally are invited yet again to be guests at the "most visited White House west of D.C."

Guests may enjoy the museum and shopping the Ranch Round-up at the Visitor's Center where they can buy Southfork Ranch gifts and Texas memorabilia. Additional items that are always of interest are: The prop gun used to frame the well-known question, "who shot JR?"; Lucy's wedding dress; Video clips from many series' episodes; and interviews conducted with "stars" of the show.

From the Visitor's Center, guests may take a train ride past the Ewing Oil Office to the Ewing mansion, visit J.R.'s bedroom, explore the grounds and shop at Lincoln's and Longhorns, where Jock's 1978 Lincoln automobile is on display. Also guests will be treated to "Dallas" inspired clothing along with a fine selection of cowboy hats.
