    Does anyone know where Cliff’s main home is? The one from approx season 5 until the end? Turtle Creek somewhere but what’s the exact address?

    Welcome back to the board and thanks for all the cool info about where we can find different filming locations. :gotcha:

    Thanks I didn't realize this was actually in the Dallas area before. I think they also filmed a scene where Bobby and April were talking business while walking alongside the river in season 10.

    In season 4, the building shown for Wendell’s office was actually located at 555 California Street in San Francisco!

    The Hot Biscuit is no more. It was located where the building in the left is. The pipe shop was located where the building on the left is located. https://goo.gl/maps/AehYEzg8CTfckUWC6

    interestingly, it was usually (or sometimes, anyway) Braddock with two Ds, but when Sue Ellen was driving home drunk in Season 1 after tying one on in JR's office, the road sign clearly says 'Bradock'. Was this a rare case of alcohol-induced 'single vision'?

    It's why I've always enjoyed Soapchat. We may go off topic (like I am now) and be sometimes too harsh on our favourite soap but I like the fact we can share information about Dallas without being treated like an idiot.

    Hey... There's no Braddock TX, but it has a nice Texas ring to it. There is a road, a Braddock Pl, south of Dallas near Dallas Exec Airport, just off of Rt 67. I had wondered about that years ago, but back then didn't have Google.

    Yeah...I really like the city, and have been a 'boys fan since my late teens, which was a while ago. I lived in Irving back in '82. I remember hearing about the crew walking/filming at Irving Mall, tho' I don't know which scenes were shot there. My guess it would have been shown during the season beginning Sept '83.

    When I lived there for about 9 mos, the "Ewing" building was the tallest, and Thanksgiving Square was just being built.

    Agree big time! Funny...these days when I say, using a polite term for now, that I'm a "Dallas junkie", most of the time people look at me and say "What's Dallas?". It just blows me away that it's been off the air for 26 years.

    I think for me, since I like the city and area and lived there for 9mos, looking up locations brings me closer to the memory and the city too. I think it helps keep things familiar and personal when watching the show, and keeps ties to the area in some odd way that I enjoy.

    Wendell's Westar is NOT this. It's located at: 555 California Street, San Francisco, CA. Credit Johnmmil10 above.

    The view is looking east. Thanksgiving Tower is across the street from Thanksgiving Square, where Bobby had his talk with Bill Orloff.

    During the baby's abduction early dvd season 3, Bobby comes out of Cliff's OLM building, which is across the street from the Ewing building.

    Wow! Great info. This is awesome!!! Looks like Culver City is coming up a lot. Was the studio also in Culver City at the time?

    According to Google maps for Culver City, there is a section of studios between Culver Blvd and Washington Blvd, including Lorimar Telepictures.
