If you’re a fan of the revived nighttime TV soap classic, you must see the latest iteration this iconic estate, a 340-acre ranch 25 miles northeast of Downtown Dallas. Once there, you can revel in the gun that shot J.R. in what was the most-watched soap opera episode in history; Charlene Tilton’s wedding dress; and the site of the funeral for Bobby, who — spoiler alert! — didn’t die after all.
West End Historic District
In a city that values new, newer and newest, you can appreciate the old in his northwest wedge of Downtown that includes Dealey Plaza, the Dallas Holocaust Museum and the Old Red Museum.
On Nov. 22, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, an event occurred that would forever change American history. Turning the sixth floor of the old Texas School Book Depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald fired those fatal shots, into a museum dedicated to the life of President John Kennedy is American history at its most immediate.
Whatever you might think of the Roman Catholic Church, its churches can be pretty amazing. The exterior gothic revival architecture is only topped by the vastness of the interior.
The world’s largest bronze sculpture group consists of — what else? — a cattle drive: three cowboys, 50 steers in front of City Hall.
