Taking you on a road trip adventure through the highlights of America’s West this superb family summer holiday is part thrill and part chill, with plenty on the way to entertain the whole family.
Letting the kids whoop and holler and run around is always a good recipe for a family holiday, and there’s nowhere better to do this than a western ranch. Even if none of you ride, we know some brilliant ranches that will keep every family member happy.
America’s ranching heritage is astonishingly rich, and the chance to behave like cowboys and cowgirls on a western ranch is a great recipe for a fun family adventure. All kinds of ranches exist, from out-and-out luxury to authentic salt-of-the-earth rusticity, and we can help you find one to suit your needs whether you ride or not.
Most ranches have a wide range of activities in addition to riding, and if you want to hit the trail, raft a river, join a square dance or listen to a cowboy croon at a camp cookout, there are plenty of options. If you want to get involved in the ranch work, some ranches will let you join a cattle drive or learn rope work with the wranglers, and if you’re there at the right time of year, there’s nothing like the excitement of going to a rodeo.
