Known as the "world's most famous ranch", Southfork Ranch has attracted millions of visitors ever since it became the homestead of the fictional Ewing clan. Although most visitors are aware that J.R., Bobby, nor Miss Ellie never actually lived at the ranch, they are drawn to its sprawling acres in hopes of experiencing a bit of television history and a lot of Texas hospitality.
