When you think of “The West,” you no doubt picture rugged, wide-open spaces far away from civilized society. The rumble of hooves striking the ground is a regular feature of the morning, and each day is punctuated by the distant “yippy-kay-yay” of cowboys and the smell of bacon frying in a pan. These experiences aren’t lost in some mist-shrouded past—they’re available to you, along with all sorts of other exciting adventures, at a guest ranch.
Have you ever dreamed of riding off into the sunset? That’s considered a daily occurrence at a ranch. Jump into the everyday running of the property—branding cattle? Feeding the pigs? You’re on it—or just gaze off at the distant mountains from your porch, imagining yourself fording a river on a gallant steed.
And the food? Let’s talk about the food. We like to think of our dude ranch vacations like those who first named them after the Spanish word rancho, meaning a “group of persons eating together.” Here, you and your whole team can share a rasher of bacon, bread, and beans like in the old days, or you can enjoy more refined flavors available at today’s ranch-style accommodations. Whether you choose to enjoy a modern getaway or a journey into America’s past, hang your sombrero at one of our ranch houses in style and comfort.
Hang up your spurs at a ranch resort booked with Travelocity, and you can have the vacation of your dreams without having to rob the general store in the next town over. Don’t wait to lasso these deals before they trot away.
