Return to Southfork

With my dear sister and her dear daughter in town and with a day off from work (thankfully we had NO snow days this year) we headed up to Parker, TX, and the working ranch that has doubled as the fictional Southfork, home of the Ewings, since 1978. I have been here three times now and every time it’s just as much fun. If you go, though, prepare to look up stories about the cast on your own. Our tour guide, though friendly and polite, told several stories that either contradicted previous accounts I had heard on the same tour or omitted key details. Nonetheless, we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
