DALLAS (June 2018) – For the first time, Southfork Ranch invites visitors to experience the iconic residence made famous on the “Dallas” TV series in a distinctly luxurious way with its “Live Like a Ewing” package. Extremely popular around the world during its 1978 – 1991 run, “Dallas” recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of its original airdate at Southfork Ranch. The event included a fan party and cast meet-and greet with iconic “Dallas” cast members Linda Gray (Sue Ellen Ewing), Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing), Charlene Tilton (Lucy Ewing) and Steve Kanaly (Ray Krebbs). An estimated 1,200 fans, hailing from around the country and as far away as the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa and Israel, attended to the event.
Priced beginning at $275 per person, the Live Like a Ewing package may be reserved for 1 – 6 people and includes:
Trail ride on the 357-acre mansion grounds
Champagne and hors d’oeuvres
Private tour of the mansion
J.R.’s Steak Dinner featuring Prime Aged Texas beef and all the accompaniments, along with wine pairings, in the mansion dining room
Upgrades include a private helicopter ride or limousine transport from Dallas directly to the ranch. Guests who opt for the helicopter upgrade will see the same sweeping aerial vantage point made famous in the series’ opening credits as they approach Southfork Ranch’s 357-acre expanse.
“We created this experience to give ‘Dallas’ fans—or any fan of American pop culture and Texas hospitality—an unforgettable excursion to the ranch,” explained Janna Timm, acting general manager, Southfork Ranch. “They’ll really be able to put themselves in J.R.’s boots from the moment they board the private helicopter in Dallas, until the very last bite of steak and sip of wine served to them in the mansion’s dining room.”
