Concierge.com's insider take:
Everyone's going to ask if you saw it, so you might as well join the several hundred thousand who traipse through every year. Now operated as a popular site for proms, weddings, and special events, this former horse farm and Dallas television series exterior setit actually looks more like Kentucky than Texasfills in the series backstory with a lavish imagining of how J.R., Sue Ellen, et. al. might have lived at the "Ewing Mansion" (the "real" interiors for the series were shot in Hollywood). At the visitor center, you can also see the gun that shot J.R., and Lucy's wedding dress. Dallas was never like this, and neither was Dallas, but this is a fun, friendly slice of pop cultural history.
Open daily 9 am to 5 pm; last tour begins at 4:30 pm.
