    :)I finally was able to visit the Cul-de-Sac of my favorite show ever! My daughter recently moved to LA so this was on the top of my list of places to see. My family was very supportive of this quest and we ended up going fairly early in the morning so we could avoid heavy traffic. This was definitely one of the highlights of our LA trip for sure!

    Last month my sister and I were on vacation in California and then we stopped by the cul-de-sac so I thought I'd share some photos. :)

    Notice the house in the very left corner?
    For some reason I don't think they ever used that on the show...

    Ewing house...

    Avery house...

    Abby's house...

    Kenny & Ginger's house...

    Oh and after looking around some (on another day, as the places are really not close to each other at all) we also managed to find the Knots Landing beach used in the first seasons:

    Somehow I don't think the fence will be standing there much longer so I am glad I got to see it before it was exchanged for a new one...

    That's all but I hope you've enjoyed these photos. :)

    Nice photos. Where exactly is the ramp down to the beach? Is it in Torrance?

    The ramp down to the beach is quite close to Torrance. You go down to Redondo beach and then drive south towards Palos Verdes Estates and you will find it before the road goes up into the hills.

    It's okay. Oh and I think it's possible to change your ratings. There is a button in the right corner that says "Undo Rating" so if you click that you can change a rating you have given if it's gotten wrong. Just as a tip.

    I understand how you feel Matthew and I hope you will be able to go to LA and see it for yourself some time. It's definitely worth visiting. :)

    Great posting. I wonder if anyone here has decided to do (if not already) a side-by-side photo comparison of the houses today as opposed to how they were presented when Knots Landing first aired.

    Matthew it's exactly how I feel about visiting Southfork Ranch. It's on my bucket list.

    Karen's house looks tiny upstairs compared to the set they used. It looks like only one or two bedrooms upstairs.
    Val's house looks much bigger upstairs by comparison. Plenty of room for the twin's families to move around in!
