Day Tour: “Who Shot J.R.?” (Cost: $75)

Southfork Ranch became the focus of national attention in 1978, when Lorimar Productions chose the North Texas locale as the site for the CBS TV series Dallas. The smash-hit show, which racked up millions of viewers across the United States and in 95 countries around the world, was originally broadcast in the United States from 1978 to 1991. For 13 years, televisions were tuned to one of the longest-running series in TV history.

Viewers made themselves home at Southfork, the ranch where the Ewings lived and where a worldwide audience made weekly visits. Today, Southfork welcomes visitors who come to see where Dallas was filmed and to experience some of that drama-filled Ewing lifestyle. The mansion is set on more than 300 acres of ranch land, including a visitors’ center and rodeo grounds among the outbuildings and pastures. Now, at the 2015 RT Booklovers Convention, you’ll get a chance to visit this famous ranch for yourself!
